    • Now add the fried Paneer slices and mix well. Increase the heat and Spread the paneer slices and allow it to get slightly brown. Let them cook on one side and then gently scrape the paneer and vegetables and turn over.Keep flipping  it gently. a note is not to cook too much as the paneer would harden. the scraping as well as flipping has to be done quickly.
