Paneer Makhanwala

I wonder if there is anyone who would say NO to Paneer. I simply love any dish made out of Paneer. I would not even mind skipping non-veg for a meal if Paneer is one of the dishes. I love Paneer Tikkas, Sandwiches, Stir fry and even as gravy. Here is a very simple recipe that you may want to try. Trust me it has a rich taste and would go well with Rotis, Parathas, Pulav and even Dosa.
