Paneer kalimirch curry recipe – Easy paneer side dishes for rotis

     We just love anything with paneer.I do try to make a paneer gravy for our rotis twice or thrice a month. Paneer in any form tastes good and appropriate spices makes it awesome. I try to make it different each time. So this time I decided to use some freshly ground pepper for the spiciness. Years back, my co sister made a mixed vegetable curry where she had roasted the onions on open flame. So I decided to do that with onions for a different smoky flavour. We loved it. Hope you try it and let me know how you liked it!!
