How to make Paneer Butter Masala

  1. Take a non-stick pan add oil and butter to it. Once the butter starts melting, add the fine paste of ginger, tomatoes, green chillies and cashews. Cook it for a few mins.
  2. Add the haldi/turmeric powder, dhaniya/ coriander powder and garam masala. Add salt and cook for a few mins, then add fresh cream, red chilli powder, butter and cook it again for a few mins.
  3. When it starts leaving oil, add 1/2 cup of water and bring it to boil. Then add the paneer cubes and kasoori methi.
  4. Once you get a thick gravy with a good aroma, add in honey and cook it only for 3-4 seconds, then turn off the stove.
  5. Garnish it with chopped coriander and serve it hot with butter naan.

My Tip:

Instead of water we can add milk as well.
