Makhanwala Curry

This is a quick recipe my friend Bindiya gave me. You can make it with either chicken or panneer or mushroom. I tried it with panneer and it came out good. If it is spicy the better a person would like the dish. It can be eaten with chapathi, parotta, naan, poori or even pulao.

Curd - 1 cup
Cream - 3 tbspns (i used sour cream)
Onion - 1
tomato -3

Ginger paste - 1 tspn
Chilli powder
Jeera powder
Coriander powder
Garam Masala
Tandoori color - a pinch

Panneer(cubed & fried) or Chicken (cooked), Mushroom

In a blender mix in all the ingredients listed above except for butter, panneer & salt. Blend them well and make sure there are no lumps. In a deep kadai, put in 2 tbspns of butter. When it melts pour in the mixture and let it cook and simmer in medium flame add salt and once the aroma arises put in the panneer and let it simmer for a while. Serve hot.
The aroma of the curry can be rich in flavor and the masala composition can be changed as per ones comfort.

This recipe goes to Curry Mela by Srivalli of Cooking 4 all seasons.

I am sending this to Sangeeth's Calcium Rich Event

Hi Dear... This is sivasankari from Doha,Qatar.I was browsing for a nice mouth watering but easy to cook recipe this morning and came to ur page. I planned to prepare "Makhanwala curry" as I had some left over paneer. voila....the recipe is so simple but the end product was really great...Just now I switched the stove off and wanted to share the joy with u.....I made little variations.I used "Labaneh" instead of cream, sunflower oil and little ghee in the place of butter. Still the aroma is good. I sauteed some cubes of green capsicum and added to the gravy.yet to prepare chappathi...I hope chapathi and this gravy will be a nice treat....
