Smoky Paneer Kari Pataka

Smoky Paneer Kari Pataka - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
This is healthy main course dish inspired from Rajasthani cuisine. As there are very less dishes with paneer in Rajsthani cuisine. So I am adding one. There is no thick n heavy gravy, cream etc. This dish is absolutely healthy. '
