succulent than the dry ones bought at stores. I usually add butter at last which transforms this dish to more creamy and tasty one.

Notes

I have used home made paneer you can use store bought.
If you want it to be gravy then add water or can keep it dry.
Capsicum is optional ingredient.
You can use even kasturi methi at last but my recipe was very good by itself.
Butter can be added for nice round flavour otherwise you can skip.
