Makhmali Paneer

Paneer is all time favorite of my kiddo. I always keep some emergency Paneer in my fridge, when she doesn't want to eat anything, Paneer comes to my rescue..

Yesterday, was my fridge empty day, so didn't cook anything for dinner. All the leftovers was supposed to be finished... My husband told me, next day, that is, today he won't go to work, and will work from home... I was happy, that  don't have to cook anything in morning.. Then, before sleeping he told me, he has to go to office tomorrow for some urgent work, and he will leave by 7:30. Now, I was totally confused what to make for his tiffin.

Normally, my next day menu is decided a day ahead, and I do my preparations night before. Since, no preparations was done, so only dish I could think of was of Paneer.
