Paneer Butter Masala

Paneer Butter Masala is a North Indian recipe that is used as a side dish for Naan, rumali roti, Chappathi. The soft paneer chunks in a rich tomato based gravy. I love this gravy a lot. Whenever I go to the restaurant with my dad, I order for this. Suddenly I thought why can’t I try making this recipe and it came out well.
