An excellent dish that was taught on TV this morning on my most favourite cooking show - Mirch Masala on Star Plus! The number of servings is an approx. guess. The kasoori methi in this adds a charm of its own in the beautiful flavour it imparts in this specially good vegetarian tofu recipe!

Why not just delete the recipe? In case anyone does decide to try it, for clarification, panir is NOT tofu, it is cheese.
