Mutter Paneer – Recipe from Everest Kitchen King Masala Box

A couple of days ago I had some absolutely fresh Paneer at home but did not want to make any of the usual dishes; be it the Traditional Mutter Paneer, Paneer Bhurji, or Mughlai Paneer.

Everest Kitchen King MasalaWhile I was scratching my head wondering what to make, I spied a box of Everest Kitchen King Masala on the shelf and it had this creamy Mutter Paneer on the cover.

I immediately took it down and set about reading the recipe. I had most of the ingredients at home and so it became the dish of the day for dinner!

I made some minor modifications such as reducing the amount of ghee and not frying the paneer pieces, but that was a personal preference. It turned out super yummy and hence this blog post!
