Parcels of mustard-coated paneer steamed in banana leaves for a perfect evening.The basic idea is to cook the paneer in a wilted banana-leaf envelope. If you do not find banana leaves at your local grocers, you may use tender pumpkin leaves or a foil instead. However, the hallmark of this dish is its distinctive aroma, which only a banana leaf can lend. This is an adaptation of the famous fish paturi, one of the royal dishes from Bengal.
