NOTES

  1. Instead of roasting you can fry the onion and tomato and make paste .
  2. Just to give a variation I have roasted the onion and tomatoes.
  3. Quantity of water depends on the consistency of gravy you want .The gravy has to be thick ,not watery as u have in restaurants.
  4. I have used kasoori methi pwdr ,if using leaves use 1 tbsp.
  5. In hotels they add orange food colour.
  6. You can also add ½ tsp sugar .
  7. You can fry the paneer before adding,but i like to add it plain .
