I always make panner makhni,butter masala,shahi paneer regularly. Obviously,without a doubt, i got bored and so, for a change ,I tried this recipe which i happened to c from youtube. Ideas ,suggestions,tips, whatever u may call it, are always welcome in our world rt...When made this, i must say, it 's nothing but panner in a rich tomato gravy. My H doesn't like this @ all cos he s not a big fan of tomatoes. But i liked it good ,basically, it's just the same masala with an exception of onions.. Instead the author of this recipe has added dahlia and cashews to get the creamy consistency ,the ultimate curry. Hope u guys like it..
