A rich, tasty favourite and indulgent dish to order in restaurants:

 Here is my take on Paneer Butter Masala.

I onion, chopped

1 tablespoon Ginger paste

1 tablespoon crushed garlic

1 teaspoon Coriander powder

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Kasoori methi

1/4 cup Fresh cream

  1. Heat half the butter with the oil on medium heat in a kadai.
  2. Add the onions, garlic and ginger and cook till the onions are soft, for about 6 minutes.
  3. Now add all the spies and the tomatoes.
  4. Let this cook till the oil separates, and then blend the mixture in a food processor.
  5. In the kadai, heat the remaining butter and add the pureed mixture to the kadai.
  6. Let this cook for a few minutes and then add the paneer.
  7. Pour in half a cup of water, add the salt and cover the kadai with a lid.
  8. Let this cook for around 5 minutes and then add the kasoori methi.
  9. Take off the heat and drizzle the cream in and mix.
