My coworker, Amit, brings this curry to all of our potlucks, and it disappears immediately. I was lucky enough to get the recipe from his wife.

This really is a lovely curry dish- I cut back on the oil a little and added some water at the end to thin down a little. Otherwise made as written. Lovely flavours and a nice spicey rich sauce for paneer. Reviewed for ZWT8 tour of India. Photo also to be posted

I made this as per recipe, with the exception of using prawns rather than cheese, and not grinding my sauce too smoothly, I do prefer it a little more coarse. This was a mild delicious curry, creamy and rich, I served it on steamed white rice and it was very much enjoyed.
Thank you for sharing a great recipe, Ingrid, made for PRMR tag game.
