Hara Butter Paneer Masala (Spicy Green Curry with Paneer)

By Pavani @napavani
Blogging Marathon# 62: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: No Tomato Gravies Dish: Hara Butter Masala
For the final day of this week's 'No Tomato Gravies' theme I have an interesting curry made with green pepper and cilantro. Regular butter masala is made with butter, tomatoes puree and cream. This 'green' version is made with butter, green pepper, cilantro and cream.
Spicy Green Curry with Paneer This recipe is from a Telugu cooking show and it looked too good to pass on. It is very easy to make once you have hara/ green masala prepped. Switch paneer with other protein like tofu, chickpeas or beans and skip the cream for a vegan version of the curry.
Spicy Green Curry with Paneer Make it for your next party and surprise your guests with this yummy alternate to the paneer butter masala. Serve with roti, naan or rice for a light and delicious meal any time of the day.
