The Paneer Khurchan is as simple as preparing an everyday subzi but has an exclusive flavour and texture, perhaps due to the apt combination of veggies and spices with succulent paneer.

Make sure you use really fresh and soft paneer for this dish, because it forms the bulk of the subzi and is therefore a key factor behind its success.

The other ingredients like tomatoes, onions and cumin seeds are very easy to find and will not involve any extra effort. Just a matter of minutes before this tasty dish is ready on the table!

Serve with Butter Naan or Tandoori Roti and a glass of Mint Chaas for a satiating meal.

Paneer khurchan.. soft paneer with chatpata and tangy masala..the brown onions gives a nice caramalize flavour. The masala is coated very well to the paneer. It is best enjoyed with hot rotis or just plain.
