My husband and I, both of us don't like cashew or any nut based gravies. They make the dish too rich and heavy and ruin all the fun of relishing the gravy.
My mum-in-law suggested another alternative to make a gravy nice and thick, and give it a creamy taste without really adding any nuts or dry fruits paste. You have to read the recipe to know the secret!
This is one of our all time favourite paneer dishes, and it tastes heavenly with parathas and a salad.
