The perfect tomato gravy that's not too tangy yet not bland. The sugar helps balance the tanginess of the tomatoes so feel free to adjust the sugar content to suit your requirement. The cream and milk add volume and body to the gravy that is flavoured with the basic masalas like cardamom, ginger and green chillies. Paneer is added to the gravy, however you can use any vegetable of your choice. Enjoy this amazingly simple dish with a pulao or some parathas.

This is a lovely non spicy tomato based gravy with the paneer. The gravy is sweet and tangy. Worth making that only.
