Paneer Butter Masala | Paneer Makhani

Paneer Butter Masala | Paneer Makhani
A tempting royal dish

I recently prepared this mouth-watering and popular dish for a potluck party and it was a hit. My daughter liked it so much that she wanted me to prepare it again the next day, but I told her to wait for a week and I made it again the following week. It came out as delicious as before. We all loved the dish.

Here is how I prepared it. 

Ingredients: (Serves 4)
  • 2 cups Paneer Cubes (Cottage Cheese)
  • A small Onion
  • 2 tsp Ginger-Garlic Paste
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp red Chili Powder
  • I big Tomato
  • 1 tsp dried Fenugreek leaves (Kasuri Methi)  
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • Salt to taste
  1. Wash and chop onion + tomato into big cubes. Add a very little water to onion and make into a paste. Puree tomato. Keep them aside.
  2. Heat a pan and add butter and then oil. When it is hot, add onion paste and stir well.
  3. Then add ginger-garlic paste and mix well.
  4. After that add turmeric powder + chili powder and tomato puree and stir well.
  5. Leave the pan on medium flame and cook for some time until the contents cook well and the oil separates.
  6. Finally, add dried fenugreek leaves + milk + sugar + paneer cubes and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Add salt and mix well. Then turn off the flame and transfer the curry to a serving bowl.
  8. Garnish and serve hot with naans/rotis.
  9. A great tasting, aromatic and royal dish is ready to be savored.
  10. Yummy!!
