Paneer do Pyaza is easy and delicious paneer curry with mellow flavor in a creamy tomato onion curry. I cook this delicious and easy paneer curry on days when we want subtle flavors. The best thing I love is Paneer do Pyaza creamy sauce. It is just perfect to serve with Naan or tandoori roti.
Why is it called Paneer do Pyaza? Pyaz means onion in Hindi and “DO” means two. For cooking this delicious and creamy paneer curry, onions are cooked in two different ways. I cook cubed onion separately and add just before finishing the curry. For making paneer do pyaza creamy sauce I cook chopped onion and tomato and cook them with few aromatic spices and cubed cottage cheese.
We order paneer butter masala when we get a chance to eat in Indian restaurants or dhaba (roadside restaurant). But, when we want a flavourful Paneer curry that has mellow flavors Paneer do pyaza curry with plain Naan is a match made in heaven.
The Delicious curry we used to eat in had semi-dry consistency. The version of easy paneer curry I make is semi-dry but more towards the liquid side. That’s how I like it! It is perfect scoop with Naan or paratha and we can actually taste the sauce. The creamy tomato and onion sauce is coated on cubed paneer chunks and sauteed onion cubes.
For my husband who does not eat paneer due to some reasons, I always make Tofu do pyaza. I cook the gravy of paneer do pyaza and in the last stage take out a portion of gravy and add tofu chunks in his portion. So, even if you do not eat dairy, or cooking a vegan version you can just replace paneer with tofu and add cashew cream to finish it.
