Paneer Butter Masala

This is my Hubby's favorite Dish!!! I usually make it and it is in the name of this Dish that we often fight when we are at any restaurants.. he orders this wherever we go!!!!


Paneer - 200 gms
Onion - 1 1/2 medium sized ( blanched and pureed)
Tomato puree - 3tbsp
Ginger - Garlic paste - 3/4 tsp
Cashewnut paste - 2tbsp
Red ChilliPowder- 2tsp
Coriander Powder-1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 3/4 tsp
Garam masala - 1/4tsp
Fresh Cream - 1 cup
Butter - 2tbsp


Cut the paneer into cubes and fry them in oil or ghee till they turn light brown in colour.Then soak these paneer cubes in hot water for about 1/2 an hour so as to make them soft. Soak about 1 1/2 tbsp of cashewnuts in water for about 2 hrs and grind them to a paste. This paste makes the gravy rich in taste.Blanch the onion cut into pieces for about 15mts. And puree them.Heat butter in a kadai and add the onion puree and saute till they turn light brown in color. Add Ginger-Garlic paste to the brown paste mixture and saute for sometime.Then add the chillipowder, coriander powder, cashewpaste, tomato puree, turmeric powder, garam masala powder and salt and saute for sometime.Add the soaked paneer cubes, little water and allow it to cook till the gravy becomes semi-solid.
Finally garnish it with freshcream.
