Today I am going to share a popular restaurant style North Indian recipe,  Paneer Do Pyaza...!!
Last week, when I tried  gravy version of it,  I couldn’t wait to try out this yummy dry version... It came out absolutely delicious and my kids relished it with  spicy  hot  pulao.
In this popular recipe ( I adapted  Vahchef’s video ), as the name suggests, the recipe calls for two types of onions ie.big chunks of onions and spring onions . 
Paneer Do Pyaza makes an excellent combo with Indian breads like  rotinaanchapathi and also with  pulao rice  and fried rice.
