2 chopped tomatoes
1 cup fried paneer cubes
1 tsp ginger garlic finely chopped

Heat oil in a pan, add ginger garlic, onions and saute till onions are cooked. Add chopped tomatoes and saute till tomatoes are tender. Let this mixture cool down. Add garam masala, red chili powder, salt and sugar. Grind the mixture in the blender by adding very little milk. Cook this paste in the pan. Add frozen or fresh peas. Add the remaining milk and cook for 6-8 mins on medium flame till the peas are cooked.
