Here, soft and luscious pancakes are stuffed with a peppy paneer mixture, drowned in a tangy tomato gravy, topped with cheese, and baked to perfection. The rich gravy, which features cashews, onions and ample tomatoes, has a rich flavour and texture; and mingles beautifully with the pancakes and cheese to create a uniquely-textured dish bursting with flavours. Serve the Stuffed Pancakes with Paneer in Tomato Gravy immediately on baking.
