Today's recipe is another simple and easy to make,creamy recipe with paneer which is one of my family's favorite paneer butter masala.Paneer butter masala is a delicious rich and creamy curry which goes very well with naan,roti and jeera rice.Since my kiddo loves to have it with naan,I paired up with naan for Yesterday's dinner.Today is the 4th day of blogging marathon under the theme 7 days of paneer dishes.Here goes the recipe ...
|Onion(finely chopped)||1no.(medium size)|
|Red chilly powder||3/4tsp|
|Garam masala powder||1/4tsp|
|Coriander leaves(chopped)||as needed|
|Kasoori methi leaves||1/2tsp|
Heat a pan with 1 tsp of oil in a medium flame and fry the paneer to golden,soak the fried paneer in warm water to get soft.
In the same pan melt the butter and add the remaining oil,crackle the cumin seeds,saute the finely chopped onion till golden.Then add the ginger&garlic paste,fry it for 2 minutes till the raw smell goes off.
- Adding tomato sauce gives a nice and mild sweetness to the curry.
- Frying the paneer is optional or the cubed paneer can be soaked in the hot water to get it soften.
- Store bought tomato puree can also be used for this recipe.I sauteed the tomatoes in a tsp of oil and grind it to make the puree.
- If the curry is thick adjust the consistency with milk.
