Tava Paneer Tandoori (cottage Cheese Grilled With Spices)

I named it tava paneer tandoori because I make it on tava and not in tandoor or oven but still it looks and tastes the same, as if it is cooked in tandoor. It is a simple snack which I often make for my friends. The best thing about this recipe is that the ingredients are easily available in your refrigerator.
