Paneer Lababdar – Paneer Recipes

July 14, 2020 Paneer Dishes  No comments

Paneer Lababdar is a creamy, delicious paneer recipe which is quite different from the usual Paneer Butter Masala. I came to know about this recipe from a friend. We all really loved it. It is easy to make. No complicated steps, just a few tweaks here and there from the usual paneer gravy and this results in an unique taste. The addition of scrambled paneer does the magic. Goes well with roti, naan & pulao varieties. Do check out the video..
