    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    A yummy paneer delight I made for dinner last night here in Mumbai, India. Everyone liked this one! Paneer is so expensive here in Mumbai. I paid Rs. 30 for just a mere 200 gms!!!! I still can't believe how expensive it has become. Note: Tofu may be used as a substitute instead of paneer.

      I followed Sangeetha's advice and reduced the onions to 1 and 1/2 medium onions and 1 large tomato. The recipe was perfect! Mom thought we should just leave the paneer in cubes so the flavour didn't go all the way through... Next time, I am going to mash the paneer as suggested! Thanks to Charishma and Sangeetha!

      I made this recipe for my boyfriend and had them with rotis. It was good but I guess I will be adding lesser number of onions and tomatoes, as somehow the taste of the paneer was pretty lost among them. Methi was a good addition. I used kasuri methi and homemade paneer. Pretty flavorsome I would say, but will be adding lesser onions next time.

      The only bad thing I could say abt this recipe is you will feel bloated because you WILL overeat! The only difference was I used fresh fenugreek and made my own paneer while I was preparing the other veggies. Enjoyed this with hot roti, and ate, and ate, and ate.....
