Paneer 65

4.50 from 2 votes

Andhra cuisine is known for its heat. I have tried immaculate 65 recipe with use of paneer rather than meat. Though the name suggests 65 referring to the number of spices in this dish, I have adapted according to my choice of spices and flavor. My family and I absolutely loved this paneer recipe and it's an excellent option for lunchbox menu.
