A very tasty gravy. I substituted the paneer with mixed vegetables and that also tastes amazing.

This is an aromatic dish, with rich spicy flavour and taste. I loved taking in the flavours of the spice as I was cooking it. The ingredients complement Paneer beautifully, except for Cardamom which I thought overshadowed the flavour of the dhania powder and the garam masala. This could, of course, be attributed to personal choice. But I would give cardamom a miss the next time. Overall, this fragrant dish is true to the spirit of Indian cuisine - spicy and rich, yet fairly simple to cook!
