Prepared in true Punjabi style with loads of milk, fresh cream and garam masala, this dish gets a very intense flavour from a paste of onions, cashews and spices.

This paste not only contributes to the flavour but also to the texture of this mouth-watering subzi.

Like all white gravies, the Paneer Kalimirch must also be enjoyed immediately to experience the best flavour.

Serve Paneer Kalimirch along with Aloo Mutter Tariwale , Ajwaini Roti , Lehsuni Matki Palak Tikki , Aam aur Chane ka Achaar , Dal Tadka and Jeera Rice for a delectable North Indian combo meal.
