Butter Paneer Masala

This is a simple version of making this exclusive dish...The real taste for this dish comes from the cream that we use,if you don’t want to use cream you could always use milk,But nothing compared to the cream,so please try to use that and also you can skip the oil but never skip the butter(of course this is butter paneer,how can we skip butter)..I served this dish with some wheat naan(will post recipe soon)..So hope you will give this a try and let me know what you think...


Paneer-1 packet
Tomato-4 pureed
Onion-1 sliced
Ginger Garlic paste-1 tblspn
Red chilli powder-1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder-1 tsp
Butter-3 tblspn
Oil-1 tblspn
