Butter Paneer Masala

I have learnt this Butter Paneer Masala from my Athamma.She prepares this dish awesome and goes perfect for rotis.With some slight modification i have done in my style.She prepares very dish excellently .Before marriage i known only making of rice and pappu.But after marriage i learnt cooking from my Athamma. With Paneer we can make different varieties ,but my favourite one is this Paneer Masala.


Gingergarlic paste:1tsp
Chilli Pwd:1tsp
Cashew nuts paste-2tbsp
Salt to taste


First cut the paneer into your desired size and keep aside.Then grind one part of onion along with gingergarlicpaste.In this mean time boil tomatoes in water for 5mints and allow it to cool and then make puree and keep side.

Heat a pan with butter,add paneer and remaining part of onions and fry till they change the colour slightly.Then take them into a plate and keep aside.In the same pan add oil and fry the grounded paste till the raw smell goes.Add cashew nuts paste and fry for few more mints,then add milk and cook till all the milk is absorbed.

Add tomato puree along with chill n garam masala pwds. Add required salt ,water and cook till the gravy comes to closer.Then finally take off from the hob and add butter.

Enjoy this Butter Paneer Masala with roti's.

I usually prepare paneer in my home only,i dont prefer buying paneer from shop.

I tried this paneer butter masala. It came out well! The same restraunt like taste.
Is it necessary to add a little water for gravy? I added some water.
