Hi readers, I am back with another interesting recipe "Paneer - Butter Masala",which goes well with rotis,phulkas,chapathis,parothas and fried rice. "Paneer Butter Masala", is one of the most popular North Indian recipe. Once you taste this Paneer Butter Masala, I'm sure it will become your all time favourite.It's highly rich in taste,creamy and nutritious because of the ingredients that we used in making this curry. I used Butter,Cashew nuts, Paneer, Poppy seeds, Milk, Fresh Cream to improvise the taste of this curry. Let us go through the recipe...
Ingredients :
200 gm Paneer
1 1/2 table spoon Butter
2 table spoons Oil
3 medium sized Tomatoes, finely chopped
1 medium sized Onion, finely chopped
2 green chilly
2-3 garlic cloves
1 big piece Ginger
20 no. Kaju /Cashewnuts
2 table spoon Poppy seeds
1/3 cup milk
3 table spoons fresh cream
1 table spoon cumin seeds
3 table spoon chilly powder
2 table spoon sugar
3 table spoon Kasuri methi leaves
2 green cardamom
5-6 pepper corns
3 cloves
Salt to taste


Procedure :
1. First soak Cashew nuts and Poppy seeds in a cup of milk for 
    20- 30 minuites.
2. Finely chop Onion and tomatoes and keep aside
3. Cut Paneer into cubes and keep aside
4. Take ginger and garlic in required quantity and make a paste, 
     keep aside.
5. Heat a pan, add oil, once oil is hot, add finely chopped Onion
    pieces and stir fry till the onions turn pink colour.
6. Now add ginger-garlic paste, cumin seeds, pepper corns,cloves,green
    cardamom and green chillies and saute them for 10-15 minuites on low
    flame. Nice aroma comes out at this moment.
7. Strain cashew nuts and poppy seeds from the milk, add to the above
    ingredients, fry for one or two minuites.
8. Add finely chopped tomatoes and saute them on low flame for  5 
    minuites. Cook till tomatoes become soft.
9. Add dry red chilli powder, salt and sugar, mix all ingredients well.Switch
     off the flame. Let it cool down for few minuites.
10. Once it is cooled, transfer the cooked mixer to mixie jar, fresh 
      cream and milk(in which cashew and poppy seeds were soaked)grind
      it into a fine smooth paste.
11. Heat a nonstick pan with oil, add paneer cubes and fry till golden 
      colour, strain paneer cubes from oil and place on kitchen towel.
12. To the same pan, add finely ground paste and cook for 2 minuites on
      high flame, add water and mix well.
13. Add fried paneer cubes, fresh Cashew nuts (broken), kasuri methi
      leaves, cook on medium flame till the gravy thickens. Switch off the
      flame and transfer to serving bowl.
