Paneer Spring onion masala

Any gravy made out of paneer is one of the favourite recipes for most of the people. So I want to make this gravy when my cousin’s family visited my place. This is one of the easiest but rich and delicious gravy that will make your guests dumbstruck. So instead of making a regular sambar, rasam and one curry for the lunch, I made this along with other items. My niece who entered the kitchen gave a beautiful expression saying awesome and said “Chithi the gravy looks yummy and I want to taste it”. Also my cousin and my brother-in-law loved it a lot. Make this gravy for a get together or party and become a VIP in the gathering :P…..
