The desi tongue drools at the sight of Paneer Masala. It is perhaps the first dish that comes to mind when one thinks of paneer. A succulent tomato-based gravy flavoured with an elaborate masala paste containing almost all the spices in your masala dabba together with onions, coconut, and other ingredients, plays host to cubes of soft, fresh paneer. Paneer absorbs the tangy flavours well, making the overall effect very enjoyable indeed.
