About Paneer-e-khaas Recipe

The main hero of this dish is the texture of the gravy,as its very grainy and creamy and its without cashews but after tasting it no one can say that it is without cashews because its very rich and thick.I haven't used any artificial color for this orange gravy,its purely a natural color of spices and ingredients that i have added in the gravy. So without any guilt you can enjoy this dish as its healthy and full of taste.
