Vegetable Makhanwala

                                                              Vegetable Makhanwala is a rich creamy subzi with all the vegetables in a tomato gravy.It goes excellently well with all the Indian breads and Pulaos.I tried it only recently.It tastes like a restaurant subzi and all of us loved it at home.You can either add cashew nut paste or fresh creme to get the creaminess.I used cashew paste and it turned out really well and tasted great.If you have the mixed vegetables and cashew paste ready, it is quite easy to make. so you can even include in your party menus!!!!
