Dhaba Style Tawa Paneer

This delicious tawa paneer is a very easy and quick recipe which can be cooked in less than 30 minutes. It is a restaurant style dish that would go well with everyday meal.

In Dhaba’s Tawa paneer is usually made on a large tawa/pan but I have not used traditional tawa. Because the one which I have is smaller in size. So I have used large skillet which resembles tawa.
Tawa paneer can be served with roti, chapathi or rice.It also goes well in tiffin box.

Its one of the easy recipe to make when you have a sudden guests or when you want to make some simple weeknight dinners.

Here in this recipe I have used homemade paneer cubes which is fresh, juicy and moist that enhances the taste of this dish. But you can use fresh store bought one as well. And, Tawa Paneer is generally made as semi gravy or semi-dry as a side dish. but this can also be made completely dry and served as starters or appetiser.

And also you can try this recipe with choice of other veggies on top of paneer cubes. In this recipe I have used Capsicum and Onion,you can add Veggies like Green peas,Broccoli and Cauliflower
