Restaurant Style Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer Butter Masala

A Royal Tomato Based Gravy!
Very less tomatoes! Hardly 1 tablespoon cream! Hardly 1 tablespoon butter! No onions! This is the speciality of this Paneer Butter Masala recipe. I learned it from a chef in a television show. Millions of thanks to him. The combination of Paneer, tomato puree, and milk is divine. I have been looking for Paneer Butter Masala recipe and have tried several different versions. I would say this one is the best. Those who think I can eat only little, think once again!
