  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 pound lactose-free homemade paneer, cubed
  • 2 large onions , chopped

  • 2 tablespoons minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala

  • 2 cups seeded and diced tomato

Heat the ghee in a large Dutch oven. Add cubed paneer and brown over medium heat. Add chopped onions and minced garlic. Cook until onions turn light brown. Add ginger, curry, cayenne, cumin, garam masala, and tamari. Cook for 1 minute or so. Add fresh, diced tomatoes (if desired, you may substitute 1-15 ounce can of undrained, organic diced tomatoes). Add the peas, salt, cook covered on low flame, stirring occasionally until peas are quite soft (the traditional consistancy). Serve with steamed basmati rice.
