paneer pasanda sabzi is a creamy and rich Punjabi gravy recipe made with shallow fried stuffed paneer in smooth and creamy onion gravy!! Punjabi paneer pasanda is a very famous paneer recipe which has found its place in every Indian restaurant!!

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.

If you like paneer makhani, paneer butter masala, kadai paneer you should definitely try this restaurant style paneer pasanda and I bet you and your family are going to love it! My family simply loves this recipe and each member is a hard-core paneer pasanda fan.

The stuffing used in the Punjabi paneer pasanda has a lot many variations and this is our variation to it. Some people prefer adding khoya to their stuffing which makes it a little sweeter! We have cut the paneer into traingles but you can even cut them into rectangular strips!

Ideal to be served at parties, the restaurant style paneer pasanda is a wonderful accompaniment for all types of Indian breads like lachha paratha, butter garlic naan, kulcha, chapati as well as rice, especially the mildly flavoured ones.

Truly rich and divine, the brown onion taste is so good in this recipe. And the paneer just melts in the mouth. This dish goes best with naan. This subzi is in my alternate sunday lunch menu.
