Very Quick and ultimately delicious recipe.
I prepared this dish just in a matter of 8-9 minutes and after tasting the final outcome, it was hard for me to wait for the chapati to be cooked and served.
The aroma of this sabji is so tempting and flavorful, that when my kiddo returned from school, she wanted to have the lunch right away, without wasting another moment!
This preparation tastes exactly like the restaurant style shahi paneer or I should say.. even better!!
