Saucy Paneer

Paneer is a high protein milk product and deserve to be included in the meals especially for young people.My kids like paneer dishes but now and then they demand for a paneer dish different than the usual ones..So I gave a saucy touch to paneer in a way that the dish was tastier as well as lighter & easily digestible. I was amused to find that this recipe hit their tastes buds like anything!!!!!
Why you too not try this...
And even people fasting can have this dish.
