PANEER METHI MAKHANI/SIDE DISH FOR ROTI/PANEER RECIPES

     Paneer Recipes are always a super hit at my place. When i saw this Paneer methi makhani recipe in Aipi’s space i tried it on the same day. I can say it is one of the best side dish for roti and i enjoyed the creamy texture of the gravy with the addition of evaporated milk in that. .

Though evaporated milk can be replaced with normal milk, i suggest the addition of evaporated milk as it gives a wonderful texture to the gravy.

  18. @subha: The bitterness of methi doesn't have any effect on this gravy. You can go ahead and give it a try and i am sure it will be a hit in parties. The additon of tomatoes supress the bitterness of methi

    ur paneer s tasty....i have a doubt...what s evaporated milk...or it s same condensed milk...what s difference btw evaporated n mormal milk.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Renu, condensed milk is different and evaporated milk is different. Condensed milk will be sweet. Evaporated will be thin and not sweet. If you don't get evaporated milk just add full cream milk

    1. i prefer to use tomato puree for this one, but if u want to use tomaotes just puree 2-3 tomatoes in a mixie and add to the gravy
