anyway, i would like to add some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect paneer pav bhaji recipe. firstly, i always recommend using fresh and moist grated paneer as topping for this recipe. you may need to avoid if it is hard or dry or preferably homemade paneer. secondly, you can control the quantity of the paneer to control the spice level of the pav bhaji. do not overdo by adding more as it may end up making it more creamy and less spicy. lastly, you can also experiment the recipe by adding the combination of paneer cheese and also cheddar cheese. if you are adding cheddar, do not forget to make it spicier so that cheese balances out the spice level.
