Paneer Tomato Gravy – For paneer lovers, I am sure that Paneer Tomato gravy would be a new style of side dish for Chapathi/Roti/Phulkas. I learned this recipe from my friend cum neighbour. From that time this gravy become one of my favorites after I tried out. This recipe has quite long process and can’t be cooked when we are in hurry. But try this recipe when you have a guest/get together which is going to be of new taste.

If fresh cream is not available here is an alternate tip:
- If you have the thick milk layer stored in your fridge, nicely stir with a beater till you get a creamy form. Now this can be used in the dish instead of fresh cream.
- I mostly follow this process because freshcream will get spoiled soon as we do not use regularly.
