Mango Paneer recipe - Paneer Recipes - Mango recipes - Side dish recipes - Vegetarian Recipes

I have posted Amras ki malai aloo, a recipe that everyone in the family loved. I wanted to try another side dish this year. I was thinking about a paneer-based recipe as I had store bought-paneer in the fridge which I need to finish soon. So, I tried this paneer mango or mango paneer ( whatever you want to call it ). I have used lemon juice for sourness but if you want, you can add tomatoes. Also, I have ground onion, ginger, and garlic but you can skip the grinding part. I loved it with my naan and Jeera rice, so do try out and let me know your favorite variations.

Paneer - 1/2 cup
Cinnamon - 1 inch
Shahi jeera - 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Ghee - 1 teaspoon
Coriander leaves - 1 teaspoon (finely chopped)
