Paneer Pasanda | A tempting Cottage cheese Sidedish!

After posting the picture in my Sara's Corner FB page and in a group I got request to post the recipe. So here it is to all my friends. Yes this recipe is posted after a long time, as my 2nd baby turned 1 year. He is so active and full of energy. So I am enjoying my motherhood. The gravy turned superb and delicious. kid and hubby liked it a lot. So I thought of taking few pictures for the blog and post the recipe.

One lazy weekend, we were having dinner outside, so had to make some simple lunch for one time. My son's favourite is Paneer butter masala then quickly I decided to make Paneer Pasanda. 

In this recipe you can cut the Paneer into bigger size with block paneer. I had small cubes. I have used Almonds in this usually cashews are used in this recipe.

Almonds/badam - 6 nos
Onion - 2nos
