Though just a tablespoon, the butter gets a status equal to the paneer in this recipe as you can guess from the name of Paneer Makhanwala.

This is because frying the spice powders and tomato-onion puree in butter gives this dish its unique, intensely rich flavour. At each stage, make sure you sauté the ingredients for the prescribed time and no less than that, so that you get a rich aroma.

The paneer has to be really soft and succulent to get the best outcome from this recipe.

Serve this subzi hot and enjoy with Pulaos , Rotis or Puris .

Paneer Makhanwala always looks very attractive with its red gravy and i didn''t expect it will come out so good when i will make this at home. I made this recipe and it looked very attractive and so delicious was its taste. it s not so quick but not even very lengthy. If in just a few minutes, you can get such a tasty subzi then you should definitely not miss this.

Cottage cheese delicately simmered in a onion and tomato gravy. Non spicy and kids love it. Quick to make.
