For the second day of cooking from a Menu Card, I had picked up this menu card from Puranmal and my eyes wouldn't cross beyond Paneer Peshawari. Infact I cross-checked my blogs a couple of times to ensure I hadn't already cooked up this dish.
I was surprised that I have not indeed already prepared this paneer gravy. When I am cooking a Vegetarian special, Paneer has to feature and so on our menu was this special dish. There was also another special dish for lunch and I must say the boys were persuaded to enjoy that dish because this happens to be white.
My boys are so finicky about a white gravy! However tasty the dish might be or rich, they won't even want to taste it because it is not looking like what they know. They only know the tomato-based gravy, anything in any other colour, doesn't meet their approval. Daddy was asking me why I took the risk of not coloring this dish. I said since I don't know how exactly a paneer Peshawari looks, I didn't want to risk colouring it.
Anyway, the taste was so good and such a rich gravy, that you won't find fault with it. And Konda loved this over the other favorite dish. So I was happy in the end. I adapted this recipe and found it so good to pass as a restaurant-style gravy.
