One of the most popular items on most restaurant menus, the Vegetable Makhanwala features a balanced blend of spice and creaminess.

Veggies cooked in butter are served in a base of milk cream, flavoured quickly and easily with tomato ketchup. Although using tomato ketchup is a quick and effective shortcut, it helps enhance the flavour of the curry and gives it a rich colour too.

Add the deep-fried potatoes in the end to retain a bit of their crunch. The Vegetable Makhanwala is a mildly-spiced and creamy dish, which can be comfortably enjoyed even by kids, so it serves the whole family quite well.

This version is so quick and easy that you can make it on any day. Serve it hot with rotis or puris. Try other recipes like Methi Malai Mutter or Hara Bhara Kebab in Green Gravy

No masalas but rich and creamy,boiled potatoes taste equally good so avoid deep frying them.
