Paneer Butter Masala

Known with several different names and cooked with distinctive styles,Paneer Butter Masala is a popular punjabi dish that is rich in flavor and creamy in texture. I cook this in a nut based gravy simmered with Tomato sauce and spices. I add the fried Paneer in the end.

1 block Paneer , cut into cubes
1/4 cup cashews, soaked for 15 min
1 Onion, finely chopped
6 Green Chillies, Slit Vertically
1 cup Tomato Puree

1 tsp Ginger Garlic paste
1/4 tsp Kashmiri Chilli Powder

1 tbsp Tomato Ketchup
1/2 cup Heavy cream
Coriander to garnish
1 tbsp Butter
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadai. Add the cubed Paneer pieces. Fry till they start turning color.Do not fry till they are brown. Set aside on a napkin to remove the excess oil
  • Blend the cashews to a fine paste.
  • Heat 1 tbsp Butter in a pan.
  • Add Onions and fry for a few minutes until they turn slightly brown
