Andy, is your recipe one that I could use coconut milk in rather than the milk and cream? After buying many frozen and packet meals, I'm just starting to experiment with cooking Indian cuisine and am finding that many use coconut milk but never (or rarely) the whole can. If I can have multiple recipes that use it, I would like to. I've also just discovered that the organic grocery nearby carries paneer and would like to try cooking with that as well. Oh the adventure!

And another question ... I don't think I can find fenugreek leaf, rather, it's like a seed. ???

If you can find an Indian grocery store, that's by far the best and cheapest outlet for your ingredients. They charge a small percentage of what mainstream markets do for spices. Second choice would be online Indian grocers.

I don't know if fenugreek seeds are a reasonable sub for the dried leaves.

You could use coconut milk in place of cow's milk/cream but it would completely change the dish. Not better or worse, just not dal makhani.

Sadly, no Indian stores. Lots of Asian and Hispanic but no Indian ... I'll skip the coconut milk in this and just make more curry :) I'll stop today and see what they actually have for fenugreek leaves vs. seeds and then will check out Penzy's probably. Thank you for the feedback (and the recipe)!

The Asian store near me ( although primarily Chinese, Korean and Japanese), also has an aisle dedicated to Indian, Malaysian, Indonesian. Might want to see if they carry some of the Indian stuff.
