Making Paneer Lababdar

  • Take a non-stick pan and add butter to it and heat it on medium heat. When the butter gets hot enough, add finely chopped onion and bay leaf and fry the onion till it becomes light brown. Add finely chopped green chili, ginger and garlic and fry for a minute.
  • Add finely chopped tomatoes and cook on medium heat until the tomatoes are soft, stirring occasionally. It will take about 3 - 4 minutes.
