Points to Remember:
Here in this recipe we have cooked the paneer pieces in microwave for 3 minutes. By doing so it is ensured that the paneer pieces will not break when added to the gravy. It brings a deep fried effect without deep frying in oil.
Grind the paste to smooth texture as the taste of the dish lies in grinding the masala.
This recipe is easy to prepare and tastes great with the smell of butter.
