Paneer Damdaar

Posted by

Paneer Damdaar, I thought to give this name to my new invented dish because it was really Damdaar in taste and looks as well 😉 I am not a big Paneer fan but I love trying new dishes of Paneer for my dearo better half 😀 Though I like Chilli Paneer & Paneer TikkaThis is the super tasty dish of paneer I have ever made. 😀 Now I know what I need to prepare whenever I buy Paneer. The recipe is really easy and takes less time also. So what I am saying is do try this at home and enjoy the rich, creamy, spicy and yummylicious dish with rice or chapati and make your taste buds and tummy happy-happy 😀
Sometimes it’s good to forget all the diet plans and have this kind of dish to soothe all the cravingness 😀
