Cubed the paneer pieces into small pieces and soak them in hot water till use.
Start by making the masala. Heat 1 tblspn oil in a kadai. Add Cashews and fry till they turn golden.
Add in onions and saute for 3 mins till they turn light golden. Now add in ginger garlic paste and saute for a min.

Now lets make the dosa. Heat a tawa and add a ladleful of batter in it and spread it thinly. Drizzle some oil around the sides and using a flat spoon spread it over he dosa so the top layer forms a very smooth layer. Wait till the bottom to crisp up. When it started to turn golden spoon some masala in the center and fold in half.
