We were really hungry, my hubby dropped me and my kid at our home and he went to palm beach restaurant and ordered paneer dosa to us because am a huge lover of dosa and the add on to my happiness is that the yummy dosa was stuffed with paneer and it was a perfect restaurant style paneer dosa so me , my kid and hubby we enjoyed the dosa with the yummylicious side dishes.
My hubby and my sweet angel’s birthday arrived and I decided to make paneer dosa as a special dinner for my kith and kin on the occasion of my sweethearts’ birthday.
