Creamy Paneer Gravy Recipe

paneer gravy

I have often encountered this situation in most restaurants. Pick up a menu card and search for vegetarian recipes and you will find only a few choices. While most of it will be something made out of Paneer, the rest few are either cauliflower, potatoes, mushrooms or, baby corns. And this is the best seen in case of starters where the choices are limited.

Whatever it is, I and my little daughter has come to like paneer a lot. And for us the best substitute for the chicken that my husband orders everytime we go to a restaurant, is paneer. And that is probably why I like experimenting with paneer recipes a lot.

Today’s recipe is also an experiment. In fact this is an experiment that I tried a few times. But this time round it came out real well and I thought I will post it for you all.

While the masalas in this recipe gives it the flavor it needs, the cream that we use in it reduces the spice and gives it a nice taste like that of paneer butter masala. Try it and I am sure you and your family will like it.

So let’s make the Creamy Paneer Gravy Recipe….

7 Easy Ways To Eat Healthier This Week

Kale salads are a great packed lunch option, since kale won’t wilt too much if you add the vinaigrette in the morning.

Packing salads for lunch is quick and easy if you prep vegetables, proteins, and maybe some grains ahead of time. But, regular lettuce gets wilted and soggy if you dress it ahead of time, which means packing a separate container for your vinaigrette. Kale is super sturdy, so you can go ahead and toss it with vinaigrette when you’re packing lunch in the morning. Recipe here.
