Paneer Tawa Masala

Last week was quite sunny and I had hopes of Spring, but in vain. This week, it is winter again and gloomy :-( One evening,  as I was returning home from work, I was scratching my head about what to prepare for dinner. It has to be easy, yet tasty. Something hot and spicy would be very welcome. Suddenly, bulb glows!! On reaching home, I directly hit my laptop and browsed. Yes, I had everything for the dish ready and get set go!!!


Since I had a pack of Paneer sitting in my fridge, my first thought went to Aipi of US Masala, as I remember seeing some interesting recipes in her site made with Paneer. The original recipe can be found here.

It was hot, spicy and tangy and a relish to the taste buds. The addition of Pav Bhaji masala has been the key, I guess. I used concentrated tomato paste, it provided the necessary tangyness and so, I cut out on the lemon juice. My husband brought home some oriental Parathas and it proved to be the perfect combo with them.

I hope, you too try this dish and enjoy the distinct flavours melt in your mouth. :-) I'm sending this as an entry to Tried and Tasted Event hosted by Priya of Mharo Rajasthan, owned by Lakshmi of Kitchen Chronicles, originally started by Zlamushka.
