Microwave Paneer butter masala in 15 minutes
I tried this gravy for the first time in microwave. It came out decent(beyond my expectation). I like the stove top method though. It is tastier than microwave method. Here is the recipe. I did not add butter in this recipe. If you want, you may add.
1. Chilli powder
2. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
3. Garama masala powder - 1/4 tsp
4. Kitchen king masala -1 tsp
5. Coriander powder - 1 tsp
6. Curd - 1 tbsp
7. Paneer chopped
8. Coriander leaves - to garnish
9. Kasuri methi(optional) - a few sprigs
To grind to a paste:
Tomatoes - 2
Onions - 1/2
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 inch stick
Cashews - 10 to 15
In a microwavable container(preferably glass), add 1 tbsp oil, ground paste, salt, ingredients 1 through 5 and microwave for 12 to 14 minutes(take the gravy out every 3 minutes, stir well and microwave).
Add chopped paneer, curd and microwave for 1 minute. Garnish with coriander leaves and kasuri methi.
