This dish consists of soft paneer pieces soaked in the rich, creamy and smooth gravy. It pairs properly with Indian flat breads like Naan, roti, paratha as well as rice Its a yummy dish so undoubtedly heavy to the calories which makes it appropriate exclusively for special events, celebrations, gathering and not really for daily use.

 

Paneer butter masala gravy is produced using tomato puree, onion paste, cashew paste, and couple of essential Indian spices. Though, it may look like a little complex, but once you've all of the paste prepared, then paneer butter masala is often prepared within a few minutes.  I usually make tomato puree in advance, therefore I often find this process simple.

 

Paneer Butter Masala goes by various names; Butter Paneer, Paneer Makhanwala, Paneer Makhani and a might be a few more.

 

Paneer:

Paneer is the most common fresh cheese use in Indian cuisine. It is also called “Chena” in Eastern India. Paneer is vegetarian’s heaven as it is enriched with proteins. It is the most versatile ingredient. Dishes with paneer can be made in various ways, fry or gravy, snacks or a filling. Sweets are incomplete without it. Paneer can be fit anywhere in dish and make it delicious.

Paneer is an acid-set fresh curd cheese produced from cow’s whole milk or half cream milk which is popular in northern India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh wherever milk is actually a regular element of those cultures.

Paneer is a form of unripen cheese popular in the Indian subcontinent. It is called in lots of Indian tasty recipes and make them even more tasty.  The ability of paneer to be deep fried is one feature that has led to its greater acceptance and a favorite in making snacks, Pakora or fried paneer

Paneer is a lot easier than other cheese to make at home. It takes only few hours for all procedure and just two ingredients- To make yummy paneer boil milk and an acid (lemon juice or vinegar) is added, add producing into lumps and greenish whey are separated. Paneer are simply pressed into a cube after which sliced up or chopped or grated.

 

Milk for Paneer:

Various kinds of milk have been used for the manufacturing of paneer. The quality of paneer depends upon the quality of milk by which it is produced.

Buffalo milk was most traditionally used for making paneer as fat content in it is about 5%. But nowadays whole milk is usually used as it is ready available.

Low fat paneer of acceptable quality can be made from cow milk standardized into a fat content of 3%. Grass fed natural milk will provide you with the best flavor paneer.

Paneer is actually a rich way to obtain protein offered at a relatively less expensive and varieties an essential source of animal protein for vegans. In addition to that, its high protein content and digestibility, the biological valuation of protein in paneer is within the range of 80 to 85.  Add-on, paneer is a valuable origin of fat, vitamins and minerals like calcium and phosphorus. It provides a reasonably long shelf life under refrigeration.
