My DH is a huge Paneer fan.He just loves paneer in any form.
I was making Multigrain roti, so what better way to soften up the roti than Paneer butter masala.
1 Cup - Paneer (cut into cubes)
1 No - Onion (chopped)
1 No - Large Tomato
10 No - Cashews
4 Tbsp - Cream
1 Tsp - Cumin seeds
1 Tsp - G/G Paste
1 Tbsp - Red chilly powder
1 /2 Tsp - Turmeric powder
1 Tsp - Garam masala
1 Tsp - Coriander powder
1 Tbsp - Kasturi Methi
2 Tbsp - Butter
Salt - to taste.
Grind tomato and cashew nuts together and set aside.
Heat butter in a kadai and fry the cubed paneer.
When the paneer is golden brown remove it from the kadai and set aside.
(Frying the paneer makes it crisp and enhances the flavor, you can avoid frying if you like the paneer to be soft)
Add Cumin seeds to the heated butter.
When the cumin seeds pop add the chopped onion and saute.
When the onion browns add the G/G paste,tomato-cashew paste, salt,garam masala, chilly powder,coriander powder,turmeric powder and stir well adding water as necessary.
cover and cook for 5 minutes and add cream, paneer and kasturi methi.
Cook for another minute and serve.
