Recipe : How to make Paneer Do Pyaza

Paneer Do Pyaza means adding onions twice to your recipe. In this recipe onions are added in two different stages. All Mughlai dishes are made with the white gravy of cashew nuts and puree of onion and tomatoes. But this particular recipe contains good amount of onion and gravy is prepared with the cream.

If you are planning to make it quickly then avoid step no 1 of blanching the onions and tomatoes. You can directly add the sauté onion layers and chopped tomatoes without blanching.

Adjust red chili proportion as per your choice. This gravy is not spicy and has sweetness of onion and cream hence good for the kids also.
