furthermore, i would like to include some more tips, suggestions and variants to lasooni paneer recipe. firstly, the paneer has to be fresh, moist and juicy so that it absorbs all the flavour in it. i make it freshly, but you may use fresh store-bought paneer. secondly, i have made this recipe as a gravy based dish, but you can also make it as a dry variant. you may need to reduce the onion and tomatoes used to make the gravy and adjust the consistency accordingly. lastly, i have added finely chopped onions while preparing the final dish (i am not referring the gravy preparing step). you may skip it, if you feel too many onions for this dish.
