Paneer tawa masala is cottage cheese in tomato based gravy with aromatic spices.This is a Punjabi delicacy.I adapted this recipe from Tarla dalal which I had bookmarked few days back.I made slight changes in the recipe as per my needs.This dish tasted very nice and I had prepared Paan polo as the accompaniment and we also had it with Aapam which my bhabi had parceled.You may have it with rotis too.
