  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Saute onions until lightly browned. Stir in garlic and ginger, and continue cooking for 1 minute more. Turn heat to low, add serrano peppers, and cook for an additional minute. Sprinkle in the chili powder, cumin, coriander, garam masala, and turmeric; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour in tomato puree and ketchup; thin with water to desired consistency. Stir in the paneer and peas; cook to soften peas, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cream, and increase heat to medium-high. Allow the curry to come to a rolling boil, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.

Very good curry recipe. I made it without the serrano peppers (my husband likes his Indian food MILD.) and added tobasco at the table to taste. I tried homemade paneer for this one - it didn't t...

Very good as written. My variation is to add some cubed potatoes in addition to the peas, skip the peppers and up the spices, and use condensed canned tomato soup instead of the pureed tomatoes ...

I love peas, love paneer, love Indian food. This was perfect. The spices took some playing around with, and I definitely recommend adding a good slosh of heavy cream. Oh, and I used a 9oz microw...

This was the favorite when I made a couple of different dishes. I made the paneer with the buttermilk recipe from this site. And I used the light sour cream suggestion from another review, at ...

Easy and yummy. I skipped the peppers so it wasn't spicy for the kids.

This was very good. My husband is Indian and he really liked it. I don't know what "tomato puree" is so I used two 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce. I also used chili powder instead of serrano pe...

I just made this today; it's terrific-I love Indian food but have no restaurant nearby to get my fix. It's easy, and the flavor is wonderful. I'll definitely make it again!
