Paneer Matar kabab (Green Peas kebab) is delicious, crispy, nutty gluten free and nutritious Indian cottage cheese and green pea snack that will blow your mind. These kababs or tikkis are so easy, super quick and takes flat 20 minutes to assemble.
Here up on the blog today is my very favourite hari matar aur paneer ke kabab. Often I get confused whether what next should I be trying in my kitchen that satisfies us all with taste as well as texture. And to be honest when I think of some new recipe, the flavor of that recipe instantly flashes my mind.
Not just the flavor but the texture and color too. Like the texture of paneer matar kabab is crisp and brown but inside it is all creamy, moist and soft with wild flavors of ingredients used.
As it is the season of peas, I focused more on what extra can I dedicate to the peas and the peas lovers. Furthermore, there is another convenient option for you if you get no fresh peas in your region or area. You may simply grab the frozen peas packs available in the grocery stores and relish over your paneer matar kabab without any delay.
Apart from paneer peas kababs, Matar kachori, Matar Paneer and Soy Keema aur Matar ke Kofte are absolute yummy which we love a lot and are regular at our table

Can I prepare the kebabs and freeze them.. and fry when guests arrive?
I haven't tried freezing these kebabs, so no sure if that will work. But, what you can do is, you can prep these kebabs and refrigerate it covered in an airtight container up to 2 days and fry when your guests arrive.
These turned out to be absolutely delicious.so crispy and nutty.loved it.
Can i try them with frozen peas ?
Yes you can try using frozen peas in this recipe. 🙂
Superb recipe...my family loved it
Thank you very much 🙂
Can these be fried in advance and heated in a microwave for when guests arrive? I am just conscious of frying when guests are home. The fumes of frying fill up the house and kitchen becomes messy. If not microwave could they just be reheated in a greased pan? Pl do advise.
Apologies for the delayed reply,
yes, you can fry and re heat in the microwave. but I would suggest you to reheat in a greased pan as microwaving it can make its crisp outer soft.
Awesome looks so yummmy
Thank you so much 🙂
awsome, surely try it by this weekend, thanks
