There are times when you crave rich yet non spicy food! The summer heat makes many of us avoid hot n spicy food to a simple home cooked meal. but special occasions need special treats. this creamy sweet n mildly flavoured gravy serves perfect for those occasions. I always fancied this gravy as kid. restaurants were the only ones that served malai kofta, atleast for us.paneer was a rarity then, and made only on select occasions.besides ,not many options were available to learn the recipe at that time.Thanks to the internet, it’s so much easier now to learn newer recipes and try them. Fancy ingredients are available everywhere, internet included thanks to the e-commerce boom. Making this creamy gravy is very simple,and with limited ingredients used,its hard to believe ,that such rich and tasty gravy can be so fuss free and easy.

  2. Boil onion and cashewnuts in water till onions get translucent. Cool and grind to a fine paste.
  3. Heat oil and ghee in a non stick pan. Add cumin seeds and green chillies and fry for 1 min. Add the onion paste and fry on a medium flame till oil seperates. Add some milk if needed, if the mixture dries out and sticks to the bottom.
  4. Add the salt,sugar ,kitchen king masala and fry for one min. Add cream and mix. Simmer for 1 min. Adjust the consistency with water or milk if too thick.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
