Mutter paneer recipe – No onion garlic tomato quick dishes

      Hope you all(read tamilians) are celebrating the new year in a grand manner. I made a few delicacies too today.It would have been apt to post a payasam I tried today. But I have been working on this post since yesterday and with the little time I got, I thought of posting the same. Uploading and editing the pictures would have taken up a long time and as usual I would not have managed to do any post.


        A similar recipe was posted by someone in a facebook food group almost a year ago. It sounded too good and I had saved the recipe in my phone. Accidently the recipe got deleted when my phone had a problem one day. I had lost the recipe. But then a few days ago , I saw a similar recipe with sweet potatoes here. I tried it immediately and everyone loved it. I make sweet potatoes only this way nowadays. This recipe reminded of the mutter panner I had saved from  the facebook food group. So I used the same recipe to make mutter paneer and it came out delicious. Try it especially when you run out of onions and tomatoes or you just dont want to use onion for the day.
