100 % Oil Free Pressure Cooker Indian Curry Gravy Recipe - Healthy Punjabi Matar Paneer

100% oil free curry recipe

Oil free curry gravy recipe, yes this curry gravy with healthy punjabi matar paneer is 100% oil free and the best part is nobody guessed it was oil free when I served them with hot phulkas and in no minutes the bowl was wiped clean....and then only I told hubby and kids was completely oil free much to their surprise.

A reader asked me for an oil free recipe and that got me thinking and finally was able to make this delicious curry, I added peas and paneer to it; but if you want a dairy free curry, you can add boiled and cubed potatoes and skip the curd/yogurt I used to drizzle towards the end.

I have to mention that this curry is so easy to make I mean you just roughly chop the ingredients and put in cooker with water and salt and wait for 5 whistles and then puree and add in peas (matar) and paneer and simmer for 2-3 hardly took 15 minutes for me to make.

Ofcourse, you can add in vegetables of your choice though I would suggest you to add boiled veggies. Check out my homemade paneer recipe.
