This recipe for Paleo Mattar Paneer is rich, creamy, saucy and slightly spicy. Traditionally, mattar paneer is a tomato based curry made with green peas and paneer, also known as farmer’s cheese. My recipe calls for paleo paneer, a dairy-free substitute for cheese.
The recipe for the pea curry is listed below and it’s absolutely delicious on it’s own. The paneer recipe is in my new eBook, South Asian Persuasion: 100+ Paleo-Friendly Indian Recipes. One thing you should know about the paneer is that it is not vegetarian. I use grassfed gelatin in the recipe and while you might be able to use a vegetarian gelatin substitute, I’ve never tried that so I can’t say for sure. Don’t want to buy my book? Then add white potatoes to the curry and make a creamy aloo mattar (potato pea curry) instead.
