  • You can replace tomatoes with 1/2 cup tomato puree. Again the measurement depends on how strong, thick your puree is.
  • Do not boil the paneer butter masala after adding the cashew milk mixture. Else it will curdle.
  • Instead of milk, cashew and paneer you can add only thick milk to the gravy. But cashew and paneer make it more rich.
  • You can add a slit green chili to this gravy before adding tomato pure.
  •  If needed cut bellpepper | capsicum can be added . You can either cut this into cubes and add to the gravy or saute the cubes in little oil for few minutes and then add.
