Paneer do Pyazza | Paneer Recipe

It's being a long time I was thinking to try this recipe.Last month while I was visiting my Mom's place, I got chance to cook it for them,another one reason Vik does't like  onion riched gravy and as It's fully loaded with onions, it was a win win chance for me. 
My Mom was very impressed and my Paa found it super cool......good thing is, after seeing clicks Vik is craving to try it.
