Mataar Paneer (Green Peas with Tofu)

Wow, I haven't posted anything for so long and this time ,I'm glad I can post again after being a mommy. Well anyway this food is one that I prepare for my baby although I don't cook it with too much spice so that it can be palatable for baby. The authentic mataar paneer recipe is kinda chilli since this is original Indian recipe and a favorite and easy to prepare. All u need is green peas, be it fresh or frozen there's no issue what you can use. You also need all purpose cream to make it creamy and yummy. Soft tofu which is made of soya not the milk since the tofu produced from milk is more tough and hard and I don't suggest it. What I prefer is the soft tofu or made of soya. Just slice it into bigger cubes and you don't need to fry it. 
 200 g. Green peas
 1 big onion
 2 medium tomatoes
 2 cloves of garlic
1 tbps. ginger garlic paste
a pinch of turmeric powder
 a pinch of chili powder (optional)
 garam masala (1/4 teaspoon)
 tofu (soya paneer)
salt to taste
all purpose cream
 wansoy or fresh coriander leaves (for garnishing)
1/4 tsp. jeera or cumin seeds

 How to cook:

 Put oil and when the oil is hot, put the jeera seeds and then saute garlic and onion and put salt to your onion. After that you can put turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, chili powder and masala powder. After this you can now put the chopped tomatoes and put a bit water. Once the tomato is mushy and soft you can now add the green peas. Cook the green peas well so that it won't be hard and difficult for your little one to eat. Once your green peas is done, you can now add the tofu and then put the all purpose cream and sprinkle the chopped coriander leaves or wansoy. Just check the taste if you still wanted to add salt.
