Creamy mushroom matar paneer

2016-01-11 22.08.36_wm


Mushroom is my all time favorite. Mushroom curry tastes best when it is cooked  in creamy gravy. I have combined here paneer, mushroom and green peas. No cream is used here but still it is rich and creamy. And the freshly crushed black pepper enhance the taste as well as the flavor.

The gravy is slightly flavored with the butter. I ve used here home made butter, I really like the taste of homemade butter. Don’t be scared, you can use store brought butter. The paneer pieces here are like shone pe suanga. I am really very satisfied with the gravy and the total dish. So I am sharing here with my viewers.i am sure nobody will refuse to have this curry.
