Paneer makhanwala is a popular punjabi gravy-based dish made from butter and fresh cream. Traditionally, onions are not used in this recipe. However, i have used onions, cashews and dahi (curd) to give the gravy a velvety texture. You can serve this dish with roti, kulcha, naan or paratha and enjoy its wonderful flavour.
