This recipe is D-VINE. Just because I m a wannabe Indian, and not a real one, I substitute Haloumi for the paneer because I m too lazy to make it - and it is VERY tasty and good!

Also wanted to say that I added a little bit of chilly powder and ommitted adding the cream at the end. And I just browned the paneer in some oil instead of butter. The only time I added butter was at the very end before turning the gas off. Nevertheless, it came out really well.

An excellent recipe for paneer butter masala. I just made it now and felt that I had to rate it immediately ! I had tried making this from different websites desperate to create an authentic paneer masala, just like the ones we get in restaurants. And let me tell u, never was I able to do justice until today. I made it at last !! The kasuri methi is a must-add for this recipe, without which its nearly impossible to get that restuarant taste, so folks, do not attempt to make this unless u have kasuri methi in yr pantry. Thanx very much for this one !

This came out excellent, very professional like in restaurants. Good as a gravy dish as well as dry. Just vary water content as per desired consistency. Thank you.

I tried this for the first time when I had some guest.Everybody liked a lot.It was so tasty.I definitely gona make it again.The suggestion from my side is if u are going to follow this recipe u wil be getting a thick gravy.It will be more good if u add a little water to it to make it light.
