PANEER LABABDAR (Cottage Cheese in simple gravy)

Paneer had always been my SH's fav but the only dish which can be made with paneer at my place is pan roasted with little salt n red chilli powder as a munch. 

After watching Chef Vikhas Khannas recipe SH finally requested me to prepare this dish. A low calorie version of "Paneer Lababdar" with no cream or milk. This dish was too yummy and a great healthy option for paneer lovers.
