Paneer Mutter

Paneer (cottage cheese) is loved by Indians and used in many dishes with extremely tasty gravy. Eatimg a paneer gravy with naan is perfect for a dinner parties!
Paneer Mutter is one such gravy dish which is loved by my husband. He is the reason why this dish is made so often at our place. It was difficult to get Paneer slab in Sweden where I live, hence had to buy it from Copenhagen. Nevertheless, this dish is all the effort. Though, I should mention at this point.. Its easy to make Paneer at home. There is even a wiki how link http://m.wikihow.com/Make-Paneer-(Indian-Cheese)

Verdict

It tasted awesome! I just don’t blindly praise these dishes.. if anyone wondered. Though I can say, I have good understanding of flavors.  It’s my husband’s judgement I trust ad report in these post. I also suggest use of cream instead of milk. Also, instead of tomato puree, I suggest use of more fresh tomatoes for fresh puree. This will just enhance taste! 🙂
