This aromatic subzi gets its characteristic green colour and fresh flavour from a marinade of coriander, mint and green chillies. The addition of cashews and curds to the marinade imparts a rich flavour and creamy texture to the paneer, giving this subzi a luxurious feel. Like most preparations of paneer, it is important to serve the Paneer Makhmali fresh and hot, while the paneer remains soft and succulent.
