    I tried this recipe last night….. it was awesome. salt and other spices I have used as per my requirements. Being a vegetarian I was longing for a good paneer butter masala.. even many restaurants don’t have a unique taste. But now with this recipe, I feel I don’t want to try this gravy in restaurants anymore. Thanks for this! I’ll try some more recipes from here.
