Yummmmmmmmmmm…Who does not like those North Indian dishes whipped up with paneer? They look sooo rich and sophisticated, whenever I ate them in the reataurant, I always thought it takes a lot of time and effort to make them. Not until I started researching and collecting the recipes, I realized that “looks can be deceiving”! Here’s one such recipe I got from bawarchi, a sure simple, superhit party dish!
