    Hello 🙂
    Just my 2 cents.. I noticed a few people mention that their dish had turned out bitter. Ive learnt that if kasturi methi is cooked for too long it can impart bitterness to the dish. This is why I add kasturi methi and garam masala at the end. This dish came out well and I did just that.

    Hi Mullai..

    Had prepared this dish yesterday.Turned out to be excellent.I have an habit of adding double cream for few of my gravies…That gives a very good taste and a creamy appearance..We all enjoyed this dish..Keep up ur good work..

      Dear Radha,

      Thank you so much for your appreciation. Here we get something called heavy cream, which does not need any explanation, very rich and pampered with fat. Moreover its expensive, a small carton cost $2 and we need only a few spoons of those for our preparation and the rest sleeps in the refridgerator. But great for large batches… like when you prepare for parties or get togethers, it attracts people to dig in and the dish vanishes in minutes. Anyway, thanks for the tip.

         Hi Mullai..

        Here we get different varieties of creams like Single cream ,long life double cream etc and r quiet reasonable.. like 50p ..1pound(500gms) since I buy the long lasting double cream I use them in few of my gravies and stays good for 3-4months after opening too.So I tend to experiment ,by adding them in different gravies.

        Btw planning to give Mysore pak a try this week end.Since u said u need an extra hand ..I thought of doing it on a week end..(My hubby would be at home heehheeee)

    hi Mullai,
    I tried your Matar-Paneer reciepe, but it tastes bitter. I used 1 white onion and just 1 tomato..can u please tell me why did it turn bitter? is it bcoz of the wrong combination of tomatoes & onions?

    1. Mullai

      Kamini, actually you have to use more tomatoes for this dish, but I still wonder what could have went wrong, bcos you have used only 1 tomato. You have choose ripe red tomatoes, try canned whole tomatoes or use a pinch of sugar.

      1. Kamini

        Thanks for ur quick reply.. I did add sugar. Next time I will try with Canned tomatoes. I am a regular visitor of ur website & like the way u present the reciepes.

    Hi Mullai,

    I tried out this receipe today and also i add 5 tsps of coconut milk. It came out really well.
    Thank you so much for your devotion you are showing to us.

    Hi Mullai..

    I tried out the Matar Paneer II recipe posted by u on 27th.It came out
    well but I added a little bit of coconut milk..It tasted very
    good…Normally when we add fresh cream or coconut milk the gravy becomes
    a bit richer and tastes more or less similar to that what we get in
    restaurants..It was just an experiment..Anyway the outcome was very good..
