Onion cream paneer

At times when you get bored of onion-tomato-gravy or simply  just want a change, this recipe can be a good option. This recipe also has onions and tomatoes (which are optional though, just to get the raw fresh taste ) but it's different. I like it, hope you like it too...:)  Get the recipe here
