paneer makhani recipe | paneer makhanwala recipe | paneer makhani masala with detailed photo and video recipe. an extremely popular and perhaps one of the creamiest and tasty paneer curry recipes made with butter, onion and tomatoes. it is basically a far cousin of the paneer butter masala with fewer onions and garlic flavour in it. moreover, compared to other paneer curries, it has a smoother and silky texture to it and thus making it one of the premium north indian curries.
paneer makhanwala recipe


paneer makhani recipe | paneer makhanwala recipe | paneer makhani masala with step by step photo and video recipe. north indian or paneer curries are known for it rich and creamy taste it has to offer. these are generally prepared with a combination of tomatoes and onions, but it gets a different texture and consistency with the way it is used. this is one such classic example of paneer makhani recipe where tomatoes and onion is boiled and ground to form a gravy base.

well, there has always been a heated argument between the types of paneer curries and their subtle variation between them. basically, each paneer curry is prepared slightly different to the other with a slight variation in the way these ingredients are used. this internally, help to get a different texture and consistency of the gravy. as matter of fact, this recipe of paneer makhanwala has striking similarities with the shahi paneer. yet in shahi paneer tomatoes are not used and onion, ginger and cashews are cooked via boiling and then ground to smooth paste. most commonly, the onion and tomatoes are fried and tossed which is later either ground or mixed with paneer to form the gravy. with this method, the gravy becomes thick and rough as compared to the smooth consistency of this recipe. i am not weighing on either of these curry types as i personally like both ways.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the paneer makhani recipe. firstly, as the recipe name suggests, it is prepared and loaded with a generous amount of butter. do not compromise on the quantity of butter this is for health reasons. if you are looking for a healthy alternative, try some other recipe. secondly, the paneer cubes have to be fresh and juicy for this recipe. fresh paneer helps to absorb the flavour and spices into it when it is added to the gravy base. lastly, you can follow the same steps and recipe to prepare a meat-based makhani recipe. perhaps, you may need to marinate chicken or mutton with yoghurt and spices before it is added to the makhani gravy.
