Creamy Paneer Curry ~ Side Dish for Parotta

Creamy Paneer Curry

Creamy Paneer Curry is a creamy gravy that is an apt side dish for parotta. With rich creamy sauce, the paneer adds on to the taste and makes a great dish.

While we make Paneer Butter Masala at least once a week, sometimes we decide we must alter the dish and try something different. During one of those days, Amma wanted to make this gravy. I was all for it as the regular Paneer Butter was boring after making it week after week.

Kids loved it and this version of Paneer Curry gets repeated when we get bored with the usual one. This is the second gravy under the creamy gravies I am doing as part of the BM#107 week 1.

I have so many other Paneer Gravies that I can run it for many weeks on if I take up the challenge! I served this with Tamil Nadu Style Parotta
