Cooking a hearty meal for your family does not mean cooking something fancy. Even a simple curry served flat breads can be a scrumptious meal and put a smile on your loved ones face. I made Paneer Do Pyaza curry today as my boy loves paneer and he totally loved this curry. Pyaaz means onion and this curry calls for using onions in two stages.
