The gravies often lose their richness and creaminess when onion and garlic are omitted. However, this recipe is an absolute exception. You will come back to this recipe even when you don’t have to eat the jain version! This is so far my favorite butter paneer masala recipe.

Butter Paneer Masala

I don’t think I would be wrong if I say that butter paneer masala is the most order food at the restaurants in India. Butter paneer masala comes with a hint of sweetness (for that matter many paneer curries have it). However, a balance needs to be established so that flavors are all balanced and this recipe does that brilliantly.

Paneer Tikka Masala

Paneer tikka masala gives a break from the slightly sweet paneer gravies. Paneer tikka is a very popular starter because of its strong flavors. When this starter is converted into the gravy, it carries the flavors and makes absolutely delicious preparation.

Very easy and simple yet flavourful preparation of paneer is dhaba style paneer. Dhaba style paneer has a homely kind of gravy. It doesn’t call for any butter or cream. With the hint of garam masala and richness of cashews, dhaba style paneer is my personal favorite in this lot.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
