Paneer Aachari Makhmali





Hello Everyone as you are aware me and my team of 7 talented bloggers challenge ourselves every week to cook and present something new as per the theme .This weeks theme is #Alphabetname  which means we have to cook something using an ingredient that starts with the same alphabet as our name.

As my name starts with P , I chose Paneer which is loved by majority of us.I always like to experiment with it. This Recipe can be made within 25 Mins and is very rich in taste too. Once in a while I indulge myself and my family to such yummy treats.

This can be made whenever you want to please your guests. A quick and easy recipe that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you asking for more.
