Paneer in White Gravy Recipe

Paneer in White Gravy Recipe with step by step pictures:

Paneer cooked in a delicious white gravy made with onion and cashew paste. I made this Paneer in White recipe gravy after referring several sites including Sanjeev Kapoor recipe. Many recipes were complicated and called to add more cashews to make rich white gravy. It might be good in case we are preparing for guests. But I wanted to keep the recipe simple which can be made any time without any complication.

Paneer In White Gravy

I did not want to add more cashews like 1/2 cup or 1 cup as many recipes called for. So, I made the white gravy in my own way.

Though no recipe which I have referred has suggested adding Kasuri Methi, I added it believing that it would give a nice flavor. As expected, it gave a nice taste and flavor.
