Paneer Makhanwala always looks very attractive with its red gravy and i didn''t expect it will come out so good when i will make this at home. I made this recipe and it looked very attractive and so delicious was its taste. it s not so quick but not even very lengthy. If in just a few minutes, you can get such a tasty subzi then you should definitely not miss this.

Cottage cheese delicately simmered in a onion and tomato gravy. Non spicy and kids love it. Quick to make.
