    The recipe is good..but inplace of deep fry of paneer as it soakes too much oil and becomes sticky...if the paneer cubes cutted and dip in sauces for some time tht can be also done and then follow by the same recipe


    The recepie is good... but tastes better if the paneer is deep fried by covering it in batter of Maida and cornflour.... and then used in the recepie as mentioned....
