Paneer has been one of the favorites with the Royal families of India for centuries. Creamy paneer made from thick milk can be a part of nearly any vegetarian preparation.

This recipe is as delicious as it is simple to prepare. Loads of mava or reduced milk and Cashewnuts are used, giving the gravy a lovely richness. A blend of subtle spices is used that make this mouth-watering white gravy absolutely irresistible!

Serve with Tandoori Roti , Punjabi Reshmi Paratha or Naan .
