green daal paneer wali



this is an absolutely aromatic dal soup which goes well with brown rice...........it is prepared with fresh peas and is fat free................i prepare a few fat free recipes so that i can take the liberty of eating a bit of fatty food in other meals of the day and i find it quite practical..........going absolutely fat free is not a good idea but a few fat free preparations give you a choice of indulging in your favorite thing later in the day.....this one is such a recipe...............sometimes i make fat free daals or subzis to go with rice or parathas or puris..........the idea is when the main dish is heavy on fat or calories , the side dish can be fat free and it works well if it is flavorful n healthy.

for this i grind the fresh or frozen peas with a green chillies, ginger, and lots of coriander leaves and boil on medium heat with home made paneer cubes , salt n pepper and a few cloves and star anise............after boiling for about 10 minutes tomato paste is added .......another boil for 2 minutes and it is finished with chopped coriander leaves...............tastes really good with brown or white rice or as it is like a soup.........
