Subz Makhani

Everyone of us like Paneer Makhani. Have you heard of Subz Makhani? I saw this interesting recipe in Tarla Dalal’s CookBook. When I tried this two weeks back with few modifications, it came out amazing. We have become fans of this Gravy and so started making this  often.

Here is the tasty recipe.


Mixed Vegetables (Peas, Beans,Cauliflower and Carrot) 1 cup
Paneer 4-6 cubes
Onion(Medium) 1
Tomatoes (Medium) 3
Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tsp
Chilli Powder ½ tsp
Coriander Powder ¾ tsp
Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
Garam Masala 1/8 tsp
Cashews 6
Cream 2 tbsp
Kasoori Methi ¾ tsp
Tomato Ketchup 1 tbsp
Sugar 1/8 tsp
Cloves 2
Cumin 1/8 tsp
Milk ¼ cup
Water ½ cup
Butter + Oil


Chop Onions into fine pieces and Vegetables into medium pieces. Soak Cashews in Water for one hour. Soak Paneer in Milk for 15 mins.


Cut Tomatoes. Grind along with Cashews and strain.

Heat Butter and Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Cumin and Cloves. When Cumin seeds start cracking, add Ginger-Garlic paste and chopped Onions.

When they turn slightly brown, add strained Tomato Paste. Fry till the oil separates. Now add all the Powders, Kasoori Methi, Cream, Ketchup and Sugar. Mix well.

When it starts boiling, add the vegetables and Water. Continue to boil. When it is almost done, add Paneer along with milk. Simmer for 5 more minutes or till done.

Serves: 2
Serve with Chapati or any Indian Bread.
