Dhaba Style Paneer

Paneer in any style or form is welcome in my place. We all just love the paneer, be in paranthas or sabzis or biryanis. This is one such recipe I came across a few days back and was very keen on trying.Dhaba Style Paneer

We had an morning errand to run which drained me completely by the time I came back. I already had the phulka dough ready, all I needed was to make some simple sabzi to go with. I had paneer in pantry and this came to my mind the same instant. So I experimented and when we sit to eat, hubby and kiddo gave big thumbs up to this restaurant kinda gravy. Their happiness put a big smile on my face as we all live for such happy moments.
