My kids love both paneer and mushroom. So when I saw the Dingri Dolma recipe at Nag's space I have bookmarked it. I made some modification to it to taste my family taste. Since my son is not a big fan of onion I have decided to grind to paste. So the gravy ended up being bit watery than normal dry one. Nevertheless the taste was amazing. I served this with Chapathi / ricePin It Now!
