PANEER TAWA MASALA

Hi friends,

I am back after a month break. Though i enjoyed my vacation missed all ur interesting posts.

Before going to the recipe i thank ROHINI who wished me on my birthday through her blog.Thanks to all my friends who passed their wishes to me. Such a memorable birthday.

Coming to the recipe, its a recipe i tried from TARLA DALAL’s cook book and was came quite well and tasted very yummy. A must try recipe and easy one too. I made slight variations to the original one.
