Masala Paneer Recipe

A quick  & easy Paneer recipe (Indian Cottage Cheese). Paneer is something that is used on a very regular basis in Indian homes in some form or the other, I love the way it blends with any other ingredient and makes the entire dish so rich. I generally make paneer burji at home, one – because it is too easy and quick to make and two – I can wrap it to the chapatis and give it to my kids without any fuss, it’s to handy to eat for them. I also make Paneer Butter Masala that is loved at home a lot.
