This has everything that a classic Mutter Paneer offers but without the cheese. In place I use extra firm tofu. There are recipes out there for plant-based paneer and feel free to sub this in if you prefer, but I find it gives me texture I am looking for with the tofu.
I used frozen peas but when in season fresh are delicious too. Also feel free to swap some of the spices in the flatbreads for things such as chilli flakes, coriander seeds or fresh herbs.
To make it gluten free sway the flour in the flatbreads.
