And I wanted to avoid marination time of paneer also. And you won't believe it came out very nicely. As we all know paneer is a very good source of calcium. Means it can be taken for healthy breakfast or anytime healthy munching also.   So, enjoy this healthy and delicious recipe of Creamy Masala Paneer - cottage cheese today.
