Today, I am here with Butter Paneer Masala.. I like to call it as BPM.. Some call it as Paneer Makhanwala some call it as Paneer Makhani and etc. he ingredients are as simple as any other Paneer Sabzi or a Rich Gravy.. But I want to convey that Cooking method and the way we treat ingredients play a major role in cooking a dish..
