  • If using paneer/tofu,You can add paneer/tofu to the curry either after frying it separately or adding juz plain paneer/tofu cubes would also taste good. Though paneer/tofu has a bland taste by nature, when cooked in any curry would  take the taste of the curry and taste good.Now once you decide upon how you want to add the paneer(fried/plain) all you have to do is, scramble the paneer and add it to the curry. Cook for another 5 mins.
