Microwave Mutter Paneer Recipe: How to make Mutter Paneer in Microwave

After posting slow cooker recipes like slow cooker carrot halwa, slow cooker aloo-palak , slow cooker pav-bhaji etc for past few weeks, today I am posting Microwave recipe for Mutter Paneer (Peas and Paneer Curry). This dish is very regularly made in our house hold mainly because it is so simple to make and it is so comforting to eat with rice or roti. List of ingredients may seem long but they are very easily available. I have added cashew paste to get the creamy texture. My daughter likes to add paste of poppy seeds. She thinks that gives her taste/texture closure to what we see in restaurants.
