I can never follow a recipe straight so here are the changes I made. I marinated the paneer in yogurt and Tandoori Masala and fried it in butter with the bell pepper. I made the gravy pretty much the way described except I cooked with vegetable oil and added a little honey to it and finished it with Kasoori Methi. I added the paneer and peppers at the end. I also added a little heavy cream at the end (instead of half and half). I will make it again. Good recipe. It actually looks like a restaurant dish. Read More

This was excellent. I accidentally left out the cashews (but it didn't make a difference in my opinion and saved some cash). I added some peas and an extra bell pepper to give it something other than paneer and sauce. Read More
