The basic mughlai gravy has been used to prepare this delicious paneer dish. Since the use of various pastes is common in mughlai cooking, a paste of garlic, ginger, cardamoms, cloves and poppy seeds has been used. Using grated onion gives the gravy a better texture. Instead of grating the onions you can also blend them to a paste in a mixer
