Veggie Paneer Masala Curry

Veggie Paneer Masala Curry

This is a delicious curry with veggies, spices and paneer (firm cheese cubes). It has color, flavor and great taste. It goes well with a lot of breads, such as Rotis, Naans, Chapathis etc. Sometimes, if you are the adventurous type, you can even make it a layer in your sandwich! By the way, if you are Vegan, skip the Paneer (cheese cubes); it will still be yummy.
