Paneer Butter Masala

After a long time on my daughter’s demand I made Paneer Butter Masala at home. It brought back some good old memories ^-^. As the name suggests we use butter in this dish but I use a very little amount and a little butter is good for every one. Coming to paneerpaneer, it is very healthy and it is a yummy source of calcium. Go ahead and try this recipe it you want to try a different indian twist to your vegetarian palette.
