What makes this Indian cottage cheese preparation very special is the use of two onion pastes. One is a mixture of cooked onions with cashews, which imparts a unique creaminess to the Paneer Pasanda; and the other is a brown onion paste, which imparts a very rich and intense flavour to it. Ideal to be served at parties, the Paneer Pasanda is a wonderful accompaniment for all types of Indian breads as well as rice, especially the mildly flavoured ones.

The name it self says paneer pasanda.. and yes i love the creamy taste of the recipe, with a brown onion taste added, makes it little and rich and flavorful, a must try for a paneer lover..
