Paneer butter masala is a rich and creamy Indian curry made with paneer (Indian cottage cheese), tomatoes, cashews, butter, and spices. It is one of the most popular Indian dishes in the world, and is known for its mild and buttery flavor.
Paneer butter masala is thought to have originated in the Punjab region of India in the 1950s. It is believed to have been created by Kundan Lal Gujral, a restaurateur in New Delhi. Gujral was inspired by the dish chicken makhani, or butter chicken, but wanted to create a vegetarian version. He substituted paneer for the chicken, and used a blend of spices to create a unique and flavorful curry.
Paneer butter masala is typically made by first frying the paneer cubes in butter until golden brown. The tomatoes, cashews, and spices are then blended into a puree and added to the pan. The curry is then simmered until it is thickened and creamy. Finally, the paneer cubes are added to the curry and heated through.
Paneer butter masala is typically served with rice or naan bread. It can also be served with other Indian side dishes, such as raita, dal, and tandoori chicken.
