PANEER KOLHAPURI | PANEER RECIPES | SIDE DISH FOR ROTI

Paneer Kolhapuri is an interesting  Paneer side dish and also different from the usual Paneer Butter Masala and other paneer recipes. Recently i came across the name of the recipe through a friend and i just searched about the recipe in google and finally ended up in making my own to suit my family’s taste.
We had this with Jeera rice and simple Yellow dal.
