Paneer in Hot Garlic Sauce

This post is a part of the “Cooking from a cook book using a single ingredient” theme at BM#26, hosted by Srivalli..

I chose Paneer (Cottage Cheese) and this is the main course dish for the same. I chose this recipe from “Microwave Recipes” by Nita Mehta. The garlic sauce was really amazing.. Due to my love for Chinese food, I tried this recipe and now am certainly more confident in trying out more Chinese dishes..
