ABOUT Tawa Paneer.... RECIPE

Rich lusciuos gravy with paneer or cottage cheese added. A super yummy recipe with Paneer that is easy and quick too. Marinate Paneer well in advance and store it in freezer nicely covered. Use it when desired with a standing time for it to thaw once outside. This way it helps in infusing the flavours beyond expectations. The longer the marination, the more soft and tender the milky white cubes become. I do it this way and end up with melt in mouth Paneer recipes everytime. It can be relished with parathas, puris and pulaos. Happy Cooking Everyone!
