Notes & Tips

1. I didn't want to add any fancy items in there nor I wanted to add more spices etc to make sure it was not too spicy. Well I loved the taste as it was, it had perfect combination of mild spices with the soft paneer.

2. I used nonstick tawa with sides to it - that helped me in managing it while mixing well.
