Paneer Makhani without onion garlic is a mildly spicy dish. The tomato gravy is creamy textured and somewhat sweet and tangy. The paneer pieces are shallow fried and added to the sauce. Paneer makhani gets its name 'Makhani' from its liberal use of butter, cream, and cashew nut paste. Here is no onion garlic restaurant-style Paneer Makhani.
