Paneer Do Pyaza

Paneer Dopyaza is a very appealing paneer dish with soft cottage cheese cubes cooked in rich creamy, onion based gravy. This is the vegetarian version of the famous Chicken Do Pyaza. If you want to try any special paneer dish, then this is the perfect one. It can be served in any occasion with rice or parathas as a special item. So, I really would love it if you guys would try this dish out! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!! Njoy!!)
