Paneer Butter Masala

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

 Here is my take on Paneer Butter Masala.


500 grams paneer cubes

1/2 cup butter

2 Bay leaves

I onion, chopped

1 tablespoon Ginger paste

1 tablespoon crushed garlic

1 teaspoon Coriander powder

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon Red chilli powder

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 teaspoon Salt

1 teaspoon Kasoori methi

1/4 cup Fresh cream

1 tablespoon oil


  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.
  10. Eat hot with chapatis or rice.

Hi, Iā€™m Binny – a writer, dreamer, serial wanderluster and travel addict. I am originally from Kenya but now live in London. I set up this blog to share my experiences eating out as well as travelling.

I love packing my bags and going off on adventures as one of the best things about travelling is the ability to just get lost in it. To set aside the maps and itineraries and just see where the road takes you, learning and evolving and living in the moment along the way.

It’s my goal to get swept off my feet as often as possible.
