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. Enjoy it hot with Pulaos Rotis or Puris .
