As an Indian who recently moved into my own apartment and realized I don't know how to make Indian food, I must say this was pretty good. Made a few adjustments though. First of all, if you can get whole garam masala (combo of cumin seeds, corriander seeds, bay leaves, fennel seeds, cloves, cinnamon, and cardamom) it makes all the difference. Fry it up before you add the onions until it gets fragrant. Also, instead of adding cream, add a tablespoon or two of light sour cream. Adds the creaminess without so many calories. Since its cold, make sure you temper it (add some of the hot curry sauce into the sour cream to bring up the temperature so it doesn't curdle then add the hot sour cream mix). Also, since I'm a health freak, instead of adding peas and paneer, use edamame (soy) beans and fried tofu chunks. Lastly, make sure you simmer the sauce at the end for a while, gets rid of the canned tomato taste. Not quite authentic recipe, but easy and tasty.
