Paneer Pinwheel Gravy

Paneer Pinwheels as a snack or a starter is a hit and when added to a creamy tomato-onion gravy, it does wonders. It is lip-smacking. Gravy is similar to Paneer Butter Masala, skipped the butter part from it. Enjoy it with Phulkas, Parathas or Jeera Rice.

I had prepared the Paneer Pinwheels in advance for this recipe, you can also do the same.
