Butter Paneer is one of the rich gravy dish. This recipe needs few extra ingredients. Butter Paneer Masala taste amazing because of those extra ingredients. This one you can prepare for get-togethers and parties, as it’s need little extra efforts. But all the efforts paid off with one bite of rich and creamy Butter Paneer Masala.

Ingredients

  • 1 big onion, 4 tomatoes, 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 inch ginger 
  • 8-9 whole black pepper, 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 green cardamom, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 2 tbsp cashews, 1 1/2 tbsp melon seeds
  • 400 grams paneer, 1 tbsp peanuts, 1 tbsp fresh cream
  • Pinch of turmeric powder, 1 tsp Kashmiri red chili powder, 
  • Salt – 1 tsp, 1 tsp oil & 1 tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 1 tbsp oil & fresh coriander leaves 
  • 1 cups water

Stepwise Directions

Step 1- Take a deep pan and add 1 tbsp oil. When oil is hot, start adding whole spices- green cardamom, cinnamon stick, whole black pepper and cumin seeds. Then add 1 big size of roughly chopped onion, garlic cloves, ginger piece and sauté for a minute. Then add cashews and sauté again for a minute. Then add 4 roughly chopped tomatoes, mix and add salt. Also add melon seeds and peanuts. Mix everything well and add 1 cup water. Cover the lid and simmer for 6-8 minutes. After 6-8 minutes, close the gas and let it cool down completely.

Step 2 – Transfer this boiled mixture to grinding jar and grind to make smooth paste. Once paste is ready, strain it with strainer for any tomato skin or cardamom skin. We need smooth and creamy gravy. (Do not use too much water while making paste)

Step 3 -Take a non-stick pan and add 1 tsp oil and 1 tbsp unsalted butter. Let the butter melt on low heat. Then add 1 tsp Kashmiri red chili powder and pinch of turmeric. Mix and immediately add onion, tomato, cashews mix. Now cook this mixture on low to medium heat until oil separates. This will take 9-10 minutes. Then add 1/2 cup water. (I have used here same water which I used boiling tomato onion and other stuff). Mix and cook for 1-2 minutes then add paneer. (Cut paneer to your desired size and shape). Cook with paneer for 2-3 minutes. 

Step 4 – After 2-3 minutes add 1 tbsp fresh cream and cook another minute or so. Check seasoning and add salt if required at this stage. Now the gravy must have release oil on side. This means Butter Paneer Masala is ready. Garnish with fresh chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with Butter Naan or Paratha.

About the Recipe

Butter Naan is one of the famous India Bread and they can be enjoyed with all kind of curry’s and vegetables dishes. It is very easy, simple and quick recipe. You don’t have to rest the dough for 2 hours or more. It’s need only 10-15 minutes resting and soft and delicious naan will be prepared.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/2 cup yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp warm water
  • Butter, fresh coriander leaves, 1 tbsp black sesame seeds 
  • 1/2 cup dry all purpose flour

Stepwise Directions

Step 1- Take a big mixing bowl and add 2 cup all purpose flour, also add sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, yoghurt and oil as per measurement (please follow right measurement). Now mix all of this and we need to prepare soft and smooth dough. If needed then use warm water to make soft dough. In last add 1 tsp oil to collect it together and then let it rest for 10-15 minutes.  

Step 2 – After 15 minutes knead again for about 20-30 seconds. Then cut out one small ball size dough and roll between palms to make smooth crack free dough ball. Then dust this dough ball with dry flour and put on rolling surface. Start rolling slowly with rolling pin. Try to give an oval shape. Though round shape will not change the taste. Roll it about 5 inch oval shape then on top stick some fresh chopped coriander leaves and some sesame seeds. Then again roll it to stick sesame seeds and coriander to naan surface. Turn upside down and apply generous amount of water. This water will help naan to stick on iron tawa(flat iron pan).

Step 3 -Now place the tawa on flame and do not grease it with oil. Place water side naan on hot tawa and let it cook for about a minute or so then take tawa and turn upside down and cook naan on direct flame. So one side is stick to iron tawa and other side we are cooking on direct flame. Roast or bake until evenly cooked from all the place. Then apply butter on top of naan and remove it from tawa with help of spatula. Butter naan is ready. Make all the butter naan’s with same process.
