Deliciously soft paneer in a rich and luscious gravy, which is sure to make your main course very, very special. The gravy features a rich onion-cashew paste, perked up with a special powder and whole spices.

The red chillies and coriander seeds are powdered coarsely using a mortar-pestle, which is very important to give this dish its special aroma and unique mouth-feel, so do not grind them finely. To enjoy the maximum aroma and flavour, serve the Paneer in White Gravy hot and fresh with Parathas and Aachar .

Paneer in white gravy.. simply divine. . It''s creamy without adding the cream.. The chilli Corainder powder added to the gravy.. Gives a nice taste to the gravy.. perfect to have it with naan.. or jera rice..
