Paneer Matar Malai

Paneer matar malai is a creamy tasty dish that goes very well with roti or any pulao. It is made with paneer, almonds, cashews and cream thus giving a creamy gravy. Paneer and peas being a favorite among all, this recipe is always a cure shot winner. You can also add some chopped methi leaves to this dish.
