Paneer pav bhaji is one recipe which i made few weeks back and loved it to the core. Many recipe crumbled in the paneer into the mix and make this. but this is how i had in a restaurant here and it was delicious.
The key for this is to use generous butter, it makes it more tasty and delicious. Loved it piping hot with bhaji.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
