In recent days I have been so irregular in my blogging owing to illness in the family and many unexpected travels. I hope to fine tune everything and regularise blogging in the near future. Today’s recipe is from Punjabi Cuisine and I had noted the recipe from a TV channel long back as it seemed so rich as well as very simple to prepare. I just gave it try yesterday as I had paneer in my stock too. I just made few modifications to suit the family’s taste buds.I hope you will also enjoy this rich and creamy gravy.

I added coriander leaves instead of kasturi methi

Use home made paneer

Adjust spices as per your taste

You can use cream or thick curd finally.

The colour depends on tomato used

Use kashmiri chilly powder for a better colour and flavour.
