Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer butter masala is my daughter's fav.Sauting of
the onions and tomatoes helps the gravy done quicker
and avoids the raw smell of onions in the gravy.
Ingredients
Part 1
Onion - 2
Tomato - 3
Green chilli - 1
kasoori methi - 1 tsp(crushed)
Garlic - 2 pods
Ginger - 1 " inch
Part 2
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Milk - 1/4 cup
Heavy cream - 1/4 cup
Paneer cubes - 1 cup
Butter 2 tblsp
Method
  • Heat 1 tsp of butter in a kadai.
  • In a low medium flame toss the paneer in butter slightly.
  • Keep it in warm water until use.
  • Saute the ingredients under Part 1 in the same kadai.
  • Let it cool for 10 min and grind it to a nice paste.
  • Take another kadai.
  • Add 1 tblsp of butter and the grinded paste.
  • Stir well.
  • Now add all the powders one by one.
  • Cover the kadai with a lid and cook it in a low flame for 10 min.
  • Add milk and keep the flame low for 2 min.
  • In the end add paneer cubes and cream.

I prefer sauteeing too before grinding... uses less oil that way and is quicker. Love the colour of the gravy - so good.
