An extremely flavourful dish that is not only easy to make but very satisfying. Our Paneer Butter Masala recipe is shared by our talent home cook Puja Patil. As a mom of 2 young boys, she has to always cook healthy meals but occasionally she will create what she terms as "healthy-junk" options. A true testament as a culinary expert who has perfected the recipe by experimenting with different and more nutritious ingredients instead of the original's.
"My kids love this dish and each time I make a potful it's never enough" explains Puja
