Paneer Butter Masala..to butter your senses!

Paneer curries are quite a fav with my kids.Last day when I made Paneer Butter masala for them,Surjeeth was planning a photo shoot with the curry..while my little one was all tears thinkin that my camera was going to  gobble up the curry 😀
Well here’s the recipe

2oog of Paneer
4 big tomatoes
3 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 large onions chopped
25gms of cashewnut paste
3 green chillies (julian cut)
2tsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1tsp garam masala
4tbsp butter
1/2 tsp of Kasuri methi powder/dry fenugreek powdered
1/2 cup cream
2 tbsp curd
Salt as needed

  • Boil the tomatoes with water and on cooling peel the skin of the tomatoes.
  • In a mixer grind the tomatoes into fine paste.
  • In a heavy bottomed pan pour butter and slightly fry and seperate  the paneer cubes till golden.
  • In the remaining butter saute the onions till brown.Now add in the ginger garlic paste and cashewnut paste and saute for a minute.
  • When well sauted add in the tomato paste.When it starts simmering add in the chilli powder,garam masala and kasuri methi powder.
