    Mullai, this saturday I have planned for a big party at home for 16 people and planning to do your shahi paneer. I have a question in this, u have replied to one of the member saying that tomato puree can also be used for this dish. Can you please let me know how much of tomato puree will be required for this recipe for 16 people and at what stage should it be added? Is the saute part required for tomato puree too… Expecting ur reply..

    1. Mullai

      Nisha, tomato puree might work and for this recipe you might need about 1 and 1/2 cup, but I personally don't like bcos some brands are really sour and strong due to more citric acid. If you decide to use store bought puree then add a pinch of sugar. Just add this puree in the place of tomatoes. As such this recipe will serve 4 to 5 approx.. so you might have to make 4 times the quantity for 16 adults. Try making in two small batch. Thanks.

    Mullai, just now i finished my dinner with this and chapathi. tastes really good….simply superb… but i dont get the colour as in pic.. maybe bcoz i use normal chilli pdr instead of kashmiri red chilli pdr…

      Ripe red tomatoes and kashmiri chili powder are the main source for colour. Taste matters the most, a pinch of food colour would help but its not advisable for day to day preparations.
