Looks very delicious, thank you dear for your sweet comments in my blog. Pastry cream is almost like a thick custard, here is the link for that
Also if you are able to get cream, that would be the best option.

Looks wonderful! I was wondering if you had suggestions about what to serve achari gosht with? On most recipes you post combination ideas. I would love to hear your thoughts on what to serve with this :o)

Hi Nicole, Since it's got some gravy in it, it can go with roti, and also it taste good with bagara khaana.

Can I use law tomatoes instead of paste?

Anjum said...

Yes, you can use raw tomatoes , but make sure u cook them very well so that it's fully liquid. You can alternately use tomato purée.
