Tarla Dalal    Hi Sonakshi, It will not get curdled as we have cooked the tomato pulp first and then added the milk, cream etc Do try the recipe and let us know how it turned out.....Happy Cooking !!

Hi all.By the name of the recipe it really looks quite technical n difficult. Believe me it''s so simple for an occasional cook like me.I enjoyed this cooking every time. Yes sometimes getting fresh cream is not possible. You can skip it. Just add a bit more of milk..you certainly enjoy this.The best part is everyone gets impressed and shall think that you are a knowledgeagle cook! Give them this surprise.

untill now i would by the ready made masala packects to make methi mutter malai for my mum who loves it.. but after trying out this recipe i feel so funny.... for this is such a simple recipe with all the ingredients being readily available in your homes... thnx for this recipe.. as i always feared it to be long and with an endless list of ingredients.. NO MORE buying ready packets... guess your Web-Site is all that i need.
