Can we use curd or yoghurt instead of fresh cream.

Tarla Dalal    Makhani gets it''s creamy texture with the addition of fresh cream. Try using it.

What is the difference between makhni and butter masala?
| Hide Replies
Tarla Dalal    Technically, both are the same onion-tomato based gravy. The butter masala sauce is a creamy, deep tomato reddish orange and the makhani seems almost like the same sauce but, with more cream and butter. The spice level is mild but, vary slightly between the two.

Tarla Dalal    Thank you Prabhjot Brar for your review.... Yes you can store in an air-tight container in the freezer, but avoid the fresh cream...

This sauce tastes yum in a wrap. Also you can use this as a gravy for the subzi, just toss in some paneer and vegetables and its ready. With almost all the basic ingredients, this recipe is just amazing. This tastes much like you get in the restaurants.
