Chhanar Dalna(Gravy of Curd Cheese) with lots of memory...

Frankly speaking its my mom's recipe. In my childhood I saw my mom made Chhanar Dalna instead of today's Paneer. Though I didn't like to eat any sweet products of milk, mom made it especially for me so that I can get some milk substitute. It was just amazing. The soft pulp of Chhana makes the whole dish so delicious. Everyone from my family still like it. I also try to make the dish on so many occassions from birthday to puja in my house. Here I want to present my extremely favourite Chhanar Dalna for all of my friends.
