Malai Pyaaz

Malai Pyaaz ki sabzi is a Rajasthani recipe which is cooked with onions and fresh Malai.We can use fresh malai (the one which we collect from the top of milk) or cream from the market. Here I have used Amul fresh cream.

Trust me you will be blown away by the simplicity of the flavors and it can be made in less than 10 minutes.

It can easily be made when you don’t have any vegetables…and goes very well with paratha or phulka.
