Love sharing this recipe with you, because is one of my favourite Indian dishes! When I tried this recipe for the first time at All Indian Sweets restaurant in Vancouver ( their vegetarian all you can eat buffet is a MUST ) I knew I can switch to a meatless diet if I can eat this every day lol! I think the reason why I love it so much, is because of the paneer! You know I’m a cheese lover, so obviously, this is a win-win for me!
I found this recipe at delicious magazine, and love it because is FULL of VEGGIES and the taste is soo similar and the best part? all the ingredients, including the paneer, can be found at Superstore! ( make sure to look for the paneer at the regular cheese section! ).
