Paneer Do Pyaza, restaurant style paneer do pyaza

 Paneer do pyaza || Restaurant style paneer do pyaza at home. Paneer and onions cooked in creamy tomato mixture tastes super yummy, we can pair it with naans, roti's or even with any flavored rice items. Any recipe prepared using paneer is my favorite, yes I hear you, its yours favorite too right?? 😉. Whenever I go restaurants I always order paneer item then I search other recipe for pairing. I tasted different types of paneer do pyaza recipes, today I am sharing the recipe which I tasted first @Talcher, Odisha restaurant. Do means two and pyaza means onions, paneer and onions are two main ingredients in this recipe. Are you thinking whats special in my recipe?? Its the way of adding onions. We can add onion petals or small onions to prepare this paneer do payaza. I am using small variety onions, you can use sambar onions or onions petals.  I had this with simple and tasty sweet corn pulao.
