Paneer do pyaza  is a restaurant style paneer recipe and the recipe calls for more onions and less tomatoes unlike the usual tomato based paneer recipes. When i recently visited a restaurant here i saw the name Paneer do pyaza in the menu card, though i didn’t try on that day but noted down the name and searched in net, and finally landed in Vah chef’s video which was truly awesome and tempted me to try out this one soon. I tried this twice but couldn’t get the clicks better as i expected. But still i don’t want postpone as i want to finish off posts which are lying on my drafts first and wanted to move on. So let me share the recipe of how to make Paneer do pyaza which i learnt from Vah chef’s video.

  • The color of the gravy depends upon the color of capsicum you use.
  • Paneer cubes can be deep fried or shallow fried and added.
  • I added as it is and it tasted yum too.
  • you can add ginger garlic paste too, after adding onions in the beginning of making the paneer do pyaza.
