Tawa Paneer Masala Recipe - Tava Paneer Recipe

I like to create new sidedishes for our daily roti or paratha to make it special and not boring. This is one dish which i made yesterday and it turned out so yummy. It is pretty easy to make, the flavour and taste comes from the pav bhaji masala powder. I used homemade, you can use store bought ones too..
