My favourite dish Aloo Matar Paneer

One of my favorite Punjabi food is Aloo Matar Paneer. I recently had Aloo Matar Paneer from one of the dhaba on my way to Haridwar.  The taste mesmerized me and that had resulted in getting the recipe and having it prepared at home. Here is the recipe which matches the one I had from the dhaba.
