How to make Subz Makhani:
  • Take a large pan and fill it with 3/4 cup water. Add red pumpkin, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, onions, cinnamon and cloves. Cover it with lid and keep it over low flame.
  • Occasionally, check the vegetables. When they become soft, remove the pan from the heat and let it cool. Weed out cloves and cinnamon from the mixture and drain out the water.
  • Using a blender, blend the vegetables to make a smooth puree.
  • Take a non-stick pan and heat the oil in it. Add cumin seeds and when they start to crackle, add fenugreek leaves and chili powder. Mix well and cook for a few seconds.
  • Now, add the vegetable puree (prepared before), sugar and salt in it and bring it to boil.
  • Pout the milk in a cup and put cornflour in it. Mix it well and add to the prepared gravy. Turn the knob of the gas to low flame.
  • On the low flame (simmer), add the mixed vegetable to the hot makhani gravy and cook for 5- 6 minutes.
  • Remove from the flame and garnish the sabzi with freshly chopped coriander leaves. Your subz makhani is ready.
