veg makhanwala recipeveg makhanwala recipe | vegetable makhanwala | veg makhani recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. basically the recipe name is derived from the hindi word makhani which means buttery. traditionally makhani recipes were prepared mainly in punjabi cuisine, however today it widely appreciated all over the world. it is also believed the veg makhni recipes were developed from butter chicken for veggie lovers.

i have already shared paneer butter masala recipe and this vegetable makhanwala recipe is very much inspired from it. however in this recipe i have not added onion in this recipe and the sauce is entirely prepared from tomato and other spices. there are several variations on the spicing and composition of the veg makhanwala gravy sauce. however the cream and cashew paste remains consistent. having said that cream can be either added directly to the sauce or it can also be topped and garnished to the curry.

while the recipe of veg makhanwala is extremely simple, some key attributes to be considered while preparing it. firstly, i have not added curd or yogurt in this recipe and only cashew paste is used to thicken the gravy. but it can be certainly added by increasing the spice level to match the consistency. also, almonds can also be added with cashew to make veg makhanwala more rich and creamy. lastly, i have used cooking cream with 35% milk fat. but if you are not able to find it you can use nestle or amul cream too but i recommend to use this as a garnish.
