Paneer Kalimirch Recipe- Theyellowdaal

Paneer kalimirch recipe is almost zero effort, makes a rich gravy without actually any hassle.

One of my favorite paneer recipes. The kalimirch flavor or pepper flavor comes from freshly ground kalimirch/pepper. Please ensure that.

The recipe is a perfect side dish for any occasion. And its so quick that you can even wait for last minute for preparing. I mean lazy bums like me do need such recipes Wink;)
