Makhani Paneer, as the name suggests is an ever-popular dish of succulent cottage cheese served in a buttery gravy.
A paste of cashews, onions, tomatoes and other ingredients gives the makhani gravy its classic flavour, while ingredients like cream, curds and butter give it the creamy mouth-feel.
We have used a dash of tomato ketchup to easily get an awesome aroma, taste and attractive hue. Dried fenugreek leaves are a must, to give the gravy a super duper aroma boost!
Enjoy the Makhani Paneer hot and fresh with rotis off the tava. You can also try other paneer based subzis like Paneer Pasanda and Paneer Methi Chaman .
