Tawa Paneer (Video Recipe)

This week is again a very very busy week for me. I am having 6 cake orders this weekend. I am kind of mentally preparing myself. I am trying to make all the figurines ahead of time. I have also made my ready cake packets like box mix:). This will definitely save time. 

Tawa Paneer is one of our favorite Paneer dish in the house. I make this dish at least once a week. This dish goes very well with Rotis. I made this yesterday & thought will make a video recipe. This is a super simple dish & extremely tasty

  5. Into the same Pan add cumin seeds & carrom seeds. Add the onions, ginger garlic & saute for few minutes.
  6. Add the tomato puree into the pan & cook until fat separation for about 5 minutes. Keep sauteing in between & also close lid & cook. 
  7. Once the masala is ready add in the tawa fried Paneer in to the masla & mix well.
