Paneer is my favorite ingredients to play around other than chicken. Because what ever you make with paneer taste awesome just like you make with chicken. Paneer is bland on their own, but they just drink up the flavours you add and taste each time differently.
Gobi 65 is my favorite appetizer, i make it quite often. But when i found a packet of paneer in my fridge i thought to use that up and make paneer 65. When i finished making it, it tasted so yum. And everyone where fighting for the last piece too. So here is the recipe and i hope you will love it..
