This is my friend's mom recipe that she told me over the phone, and it turned out great when I tried it. Paneer is Indian cheese (for homemade paneer, refer Homemade Paneer / Panir (Indian Curd Cheese)). You can substitute with firm tofu or feta cheese, but this really tastes best with paneer. Enjoy!
