Veg Makhani recipe, Veg Makhanwala

Veg makhani | veg makhanwala, no onion no garlic version with step by step pictures, a rich creamy gravy, pairs well with roti, rice. Makhani gravy is a popular Indian gravy. I have tasted Veg makhani in restaurants, recently attempted Paneer makhani gravy and shared the recipe too. This post also uses the same base for makhani gravy, a no onion no garlic version, to suit this navaratri season. The gravy turned out so rich and yummy and the flavour of the simple spices complimented the Veg makhani. No fancy ingredients needed, just make the Veg makhanwala with the ingredients easily available at home and enjoy this finger licking gravy. I have posted No onion garlic version of Paneer butter masala recipe few years back.

  2. Almonds can be replaced by cashew nuts.
  3. If you do not have fresh cream add 1/2 cup of full cream milk. 
  4. If you want to add onion, saute one onion in butter and grind this along with the tomatoes.
  5. Paneer can also be added to the Veg makhanwala gravy.
