   Hi Sham, Just follow the exact recipe to get a very nice product. The paneer will not get mashed as they are cut into cubes , just when you mix make sure you mix it gently.

   Hi Anuradha, You can avoid using garlic and instead of onoins you can use thinly shredded cabbage. It will add a nice taste. Do try this recipe and let us know your feedback.
