How many times have we all enjoyed this dish with a naan or roti. It is an evergreen recipe and loved by all. I am yet to come across someone who doesn't like paneer. One can do so many variations with it. It enhances the flavor of any dish. Green peas and Paneer make a great combo. If you have never tried this dish, then now is the time!
