Paneer Butter Masala, Paneer Makhni or Butter Paneer is a rich and creamy Paneer curry. This classic South Asian Recipe is made with cubed Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese), Onions, Tomatoes, Spices and Cream.


  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger paste
  • 1 tsp Garlic paste
  • 200g Plum Tomatoes, pureed
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder

  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 200 g Paneer, cut into cubes
  • 2 tbsp Double Cream
  • 1 tbsp Honey


Heat butter in a pan and add cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add chopped onions and sauté until golden brown.

Add ginger and garlic paste and cook for a minute.

Then add tomato puree and cook until the oil separates from the mixture.

Add turmeric powder, garam masala, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well and cook for a couple of minutes.

Add paneer cubes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Stir in cream and honey and simmer for a few minutes until the flavours meld together.

Serve hot with naan or rice.


Soak a handful of Cashews in water for 20 minutes and blend to form a paste. Add along with the Cream to thicken the Paneer Curry.
