Creamy Paneer Gravy

The name of the dish might sound slightly odd to all of you. I actually wanted to make paneer butter masala for my little guest at home.But I was not satisfied with the recipes I found and I didn’t have much time to surf. So I ended up making the below paneer gravy which really had the flavour of paneer butter masala (restaurant style) and tasted yummmmmmmmmmmm…. with naan. Do try out and comment .
