Easy Butter Paneer

Another really easy recipe, inspired by my favourite Vah Chef. Made a few changes, but it’s still super tasty and goes brilliantly with roti. For a super yummy snack, stuff leftover butter paneer between 2 slices of bread with some grated cheese and toast in a sandwich maker. They come out like paneer samosas.

Ingredients (a): Mix together

  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon fennel powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon kastoori methi
  • 2 tablespoons hot and sweet maggi sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 teaspoons onion flakes
  • 2 tablespoons cream

Ingredients (b):

  • 1 block paneer (cubed)
  • Oil for frying

Ingredients (c):

  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • salt to taste

Fry off the paneer cubes in the oil. Brown all sides. Remove from pan and set aside. Pour off excess oil, in the same pan, add 1 tablespoon butter. Fry off ginger and garlic paste until fragrant. Add ingredients (a) and cook until fragrant. Add frozen peas, paneer cubes and cream. Simmer until thick and oil separates from gravy. Add salt to taste, to finish off, add remaining tablespoon of butter. Stir well. Serve with rice or roti. Enjoy!
