  4. Any substitute for cream??

  5. @Anonymoususe milk mixed with some cornflour

  6. Hi aarthi...I love n follow ur recipes...Thanks a lot for step by step recipes...I hav a query...i knw it wl sound quiet silly but had to clear a doubt��pls tell me how did u cook onion n tomatoes paste.. in low or high flame???If in ny recipe it's written to cook tomato till oil separates..shall v need to cook in low or high flame??? I hav heard if u cook tomatoes on high flame smell of tomatoes won't go...is it true??? Tia☺

  7. @AnonymousI always cook on medium high when cooking onions. Then i reduce the flame to medium and cook tomatoes for few mins, then simmer and cook till tomatoes turn mushy.

  8. I tried this.too good.I impressed my in laws

  9. What type of paneer is this? We have cottage cheese in Bangladesh. Will that do?

  10. Did you add anything for the colour other than chilli powder? Because chilli powder can make the curry spicy..

    1. i used kashmiri chilli powder. which gives colour and not spicyness
