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

3 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 large onions chopped
25gms of cashewnut paste

4tbsp butter
1/2 tsp of Kasuri methi powder/dry fenugreek powdered
1/2 cup cream

  • 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.
