Mushroom paneer spicy cashew masala/Canned mushroom ricotta cheese gravy/Mushroom recipes for rotis/How to make mushroom paneer curry


Paneer gravy or paneer peas gravy is regular natural dish which people cooks often for rotis as a side dish..But,for a variation I added some mushrooms and used cashews which soaked in milk for 15 minutes..The method of recipe may looks like different with our regualr other gravy dishes.But it wroth trying and it`s a perfect dish for rotis and pulkas.Next time when you have some mushrooms try it with paneer.I used canned mushrooms in this,and you can go with fresh ones but it require time to clean..Spices gives a good taste and bleding onion tomato mix into puree gives such a nice grvay look to the dish.Try this reipe once and hope you like it..Also,if you creative or like experiments try it with almonds instaed of cashews for a change..
*I took pictures exactly in the afternoon time at 4pm.It was very hot that day and the day light dominated pics.So,pics are slightly edited in picasa for a clear look...
