Paneer Butter Masala

We had relatives visiting us on Friday and I had to cook after coming back from work and did not have much time. So tried this quick recipe which I had written down in my book but had never tried before. I wasn't very sure how it would taste. But at the cost of sounding immodest, I must tell you that this turned out better than dishes served in restaurants:) 

  1. Take a non stick pan and fry 1 grated onion in 1 tbsp oil/butter and saute till brown. I add some salt while sauteing the onions as the salt gets absorbed and the dish tastes better.
  2. In the meantime, take a bowl. Add 2 tsp of coriander powder, 2 tsp of chilli powder, 1 tsp garam masala, 2 tsp of kasoori methi powder, puree of  2 tomatoes and half a cup milk and whisk it and leave aside. I add spices always   based on my judgement and my preferred you can change this according to your liking.
  3. Add 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste to the onion and saute. Now add the above mixture and let it cook on a slow flame for 3-4 mins.
  4. Add  250 gms paneer cubes and salt to taste and bring it to one boil. Garnish with coriander and serve with Chappatis. You can add cream if you want but I skipped it.

The video for this recipe can be found here at I used fresh onions and fresh tomato puree instead of fried onions and ketchup that the chef is using here.
