Butter paneer masala..


Although the pic is not looking so appealing, but the taste was super yum. In fact, it was made for 6 people but got finished off among 4 only 😛


Paneer-1 cup(cut into pieces)
Tomato-1 cup(diced)
Onion-1/2 cup(diced)
Cashewnut-1/4 cup
Green chilli-2 nos.
Cardamom-2 nos.
Clove-2 nos.
Bay leaf-1 pc.
Kasuri methi-2 tsp
Garam masala-1 tsp
Tomato puree-3 tbsp
Curd- 2 tbsp
Honey-1/2 tsp(optional)
Fresh cream-2 tbsp
Garlic paste-1 tsp
Salt-to taste
Butter-1-2 tbsp
Oil-1 tbsp


-> In a wok take tomato, onion, cashewnut, green chilli and 1½ cups of water. Cook for about 7-10 minutes. Let it cools down and then make its paste.
-> Now in a skillet or a wok, take oil and butter(oil prevents burning of butter).
-> Add garlic paste let it turn light brown.
-> Now add cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf, crushed kasuri mehi and garam masala.
-> Add tomato puree and the blended paste. Cook till oil separates.
-> Add salt and curd(beat it well before adding).
-> Now add paneer(either dipped in warm water or fried, however you like it). Cook on slow flame for another 2-3 minutes.
-> Switch off the stove and add cream & honey (optional).

Serve hot with roti/paratha/naan! 🙂
