Peas and cottage cheese are a made-for-each other duo, whatever be the style of preparation. A seemingly elaborate but actually easy recipe, Mutter Paneer Butter Masala is an ideal accompaniment for rotis and rice too. A masala paste sautéed in butter is further perked up with spice powders, tangy tomato, milk, cream and other ingredients to form a rich gravy that holds the star ingredients – mutter and paneer. The aroma and good looks of this dish make it truly irresistible.
