The appetizing bitterness of methi, the royal creaminess of malai and the succulence of paneer come together to make an awesome subzi that tops the chart of favourites in most Indian restaurants. A paste of cashew nut, tomatoes, onions and spices adds to the luscious mouth-feel of the Methi Malai Paneer Subzi, while also adding some spicy notes to it. Throw in a few more commonly-available spice powders, and you achieve a perfect balance of creaminess and spice, the two essential dimensions of a rich subzi. Enjoy this restaurant-style subzi with your favourite roti or pulao.
