Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer makhani or paneer butter masala is a mild creamy gravy best enjoyed with hot naan or rotis. Although this dish would not top the health charts because of the use of heavy cream, however I would say occasional indulgence can be a boon to life!! A rich classy dish served at Indian parties and weddings, Paneer Butter Masala never fails to disappoint the foodies.
