Most people think the bland nature of paneer makes it suitable only for tangy tomato gravies, but that is a misconception — paneer is so versatile that it goes well with white gravy too. Paneer in quick white gravy is an easy and fast, mildly-flavoured preparation. If made with fresh, soft paneer, it is truly a heavenly experience.

as the name suggest- this recipe is very quick to prepare and scrumptiously delicious... well a very royal tasting dish as the richness from the cream cashew nuts and milk is very well balanced with the mild hit of garam masala... enjoy them with hot crisp butter parathas for that royal treat you want to indulge once in a while..

Soft paneer cooked in an onion and cashewnut paste white gravy. My kids enjoyed this too. Very or zero spice in this recipe.
