Methi Paneer Recipe

Published August 6, 2014 by Bingo's Mom
I bought Paneer a week ago, thought of preparing Palak Paneer. But I could not get fresh palak and I got bored with paneer parata. So decided to prepare something else. While going through Sailu’s blog I saw this recipe, which looked great and I replaced chicken with paneer.
I did not get the color which her picture has 😦 but, I swear it tasted awesome 🙂 The flavor of methi made the recipe a finger licking good. I liked it very much.
