Bring to a quick boil, then reduce to low heat and cook for 18-20 minutes, or until the cauliflower is barely soft.
Cook for another 5 minutes after adding the frozen peas and crispy paneer to the pan. Stir in the majority of the coriander, then top with the rest. Serve with raita or your favorite chutney with basmati rice or naan bread.
