Paneer makhani

A typical restaurant style paneer dish,creamy yet without cream,rich however without cashews or any other nuts and most flavoursome .Today's recipe which i am  posting is adapted from one of my favourite fellow blogger's blog and i dont know how many recipes i have bookmarked from her blog ,have made a couple of them before which were too good but this dish was a huge hit,exceptionally good,very simple to make yet delicious.I am a great fan of paneer,can have any dish with paneer and will surely keep trying various recipes out of it.Actual recipe was paneer methi makhani,using fresh methi ( fenugreek )leaves however,in aussie land fresh methi leaves are not available hence i added kasuri methi .The credit goes to Puja akka Aipi of USMASALA ,pls do check out  her space with marvellous and spell bound dishes.Thanks a bunch dear for all your wondrous collection of recipes !
