Tawa Paneer Masala/Paneer Tawa Masala

I have rarely seen my kids saying 'no' to paneer, obviously my second post for this week's blogging marathon is an alluring, fingerlicking goodness Tawa paneer masala to serve along either with some pulao or else with rotis. As i told earlier, my kids just love paneer in any form. Obviously i opted to prepare paneer myself at home as they are quite expensive and very less in weight when compared to the homemade paneer. Whenever i feel like cooking with paneer, i prepare paneer at home, not to forget they are freezer friendly as well. Those frozen paneer cubes are very easy to cook with at anytime of the day, yes they are super handy.

Tawa Paneer Masala

Easy to make, this tawa paneer masala tastes absolutely delicious to serve with some phulkas or rotis, and this tawa paneer masala is my kid's favourite. Usually fresh cream is added to paneer tawa masala, but my today's post is a cream free masala to enjoy without any fuss. Try this cream free Tawa paneer masala to relish with your favourite dish.

Making our own paneer is definitely so cost effective Priya. Unfortunately, I still cannot get that perfect texture of paneer when I make it at home. I guess I need to keep trying. Between, this dish is so tempting and I am literally drooling here!
