Paneer Makhani Recipe

I don't make paneer makhani very often because of the calories, particularly since I started working out to lose the baby weight. But today I had an excuse: I had leftover cream from making a white peach macadamia tart (which I'll share tomorrow), a bucket of freshly picked tomatoes and a bag of cashew nuts in the pantry. 

I marinated the cubes of paneer prior to pan-frying them. The tangy flavor from the lemon juice, yogurt and cream balanced wonderfully with the sweetness from the tomato sauce. I didn't feel bad eating the dish because it was so good!

Paneer Butter Masala Recipe

06.10.11 by Jackie

Paneer butter masala probably isn't the healthiest vegetarian dish out there, but it is surely delicious. Pretty much anything with butter in the title is a recipe for success. I remember a restaurant reviewer once saying that given enough butter and cream, sand can taste great. That may be a bit of a stretch, but when you layer this sauce over gently fried Indian cheese, it’s impossible to resist.

The sauce consists of a blend of butter, heavy cream, tomato sauce, lime juice, almond flour and a few other Indian spices. To that, fried cubes of paneer (Indian cheese) are added and simmered. You could always substitute fried tofu for the paneer, but I think it's better to go all out in the calorie department if you’re going to make this dish!
