Paneer Makhani (Paneer Butter Masala) (Restaurant Style)

Share this recipe:

Paneer Makhani is most popular North Indian dish which we order at restaurants. But now you can make this at home very easily. Earlier I shared how to make Kadai paneer – Restaurant style. I used canned tomato sauce for color and tangy flavor. It is made in butter as its name says makhani. it has very rich and creamy gravy. This is not the dish that you want to eat on everyday basis. This curry is perfect for parties or treat your family once in a while.
