Butter paneer masala..
Butter paneer masala is one the famous dishes of paneer. 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 😛 . Lets move on its recipe.
* 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

* 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 diced tomato, onion, cashewnut and green chilli. Add 1½ cups of water and cook for about 7-10 minutes. Let it cools down a bit and then make its paste in blender.
-> Now in a skillet or a wok, take oil and butter (oil prevents burning of butter).
-> Add garlic paste and cook for 1-2 minutes till it turns 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).

-> Switch off the stove and add cream & honey (optional).
Serve hot with roti/paratha/naan! 🙂
