Tawa Paneer

Tawa Paneer

I explained to you in my earlier post, this week, about how to make homemade paneer. If you have missed it you can always CLICK HERE and see. (It will only open in the next tab and it will not disturb you)

In the earlier post about how to make homemade paneer I was just telling about cutting the paneer into square pieces, is it not? There are some recipes which you can make out of the square solid paneer cubes and also there are some recipes which you can make out of the left out cutting waste. So you need not worry about the paneer which is not square, we will do something with that too.
Now coming to Tawa Paneer you take the nice square pieces only and you can make it just like that in a few minutes. It will serve as a wonderful side dish for Paratha, Naan, Chappathi or even Dosa, especially for the dinner. Now let us get started.

 Mix lightly and avoid breaking paneer into pieces. Close the tawa and cook for about 5 minutes so that the paneer absorbs the aroma of the masala. Garnish with coriander and serve with naan.
