Paneer do pyaza recipe (How to make paneer do pyaza, restaurant style)

In this recipe, onions are added in two different ways.
1. Cubed onions are cooked separately and kept little crunchy. This added later on in the curry for some texture.
2. Sliced onions are cooked along with tomatoes till they are soft and mushy. It enhances the flavor of gravy.

Recently I have shared bhindi do pyaza recipe, in that recipe there are only okra and onions in the subzi. But in this do pyaza recipe I have added some tomatoes to make little gravy and for some flavor which complements well with paneer.

This is semi dry kind of gravy. All the masala and cooked tomatoes will coat the paneer and onion cubes. Paneer will absorb all the flavors and makes the dish delicious tasting.

I have added some cream at the end to make it restaurant style which gives nice creamy taste to the curry. I saw this recipe on Food Food channel show, and noted down the recipe that time. Last week I get the chance to make it and dear husband just loved it.
