A true paneer delight!! the roasting of onions and then blending really gives smoothness and flavour to the gravy.

Wonderful. Just like I tasted in a local Indian restaurant. I eat only sattvic food (in the mode of goodness) therefore instead of the onions I fried some rice flour and besan gram flour in butter and proceeded. Also I did not have any poppy seeds, so I used 3 tsps of ground flax. It went out awesome.
