Paneer Mushroom Curry

For the final day of BM#47, bookmarked theme, I have a recipe from my Mom's dairy a recipe she saw in some TV Show. Paneer regularly features in our weekly menu. It is one ingredient that my kids love, so much so that they prefer this over any non veg dish as well. We made this dish when we had our cousin and his wife and non veg was also part of the menu.

However all three of them wanted only Paneer and not the non veg that was made. This paneer was the vegetarian option, so hubby dear was saying they should let the vegetarians have something to eat. Boys were more keen on the paneer and not the mushroom. They were clear that they wanted the mushroom to be removed and just the paneer to be given.
