ABOUT Methi Paneer Stir Fry RECIPE

Tried this very popular winter special Methi Paneer in a different style. Made it dry to be relished as a side dish with chapati or any Indian bread. It turned out real yummy. Very simple and an easy dish to prepare, it can be made in a jiffy. This amazing combination of the bitterness from the fresh fenugreek leaves and the sweetness from the paneer (cottage cheese) does wonders to this simple delicacy.
