Cutlets Butter Masala

I had readymade paneer butter masala packet ( Eastern brand). It’s not the ready to eat variety, just a dry masala mix. I did not want to make the regular paneer butter masala with that. I wanted to do something very different.
First I thought of using this masala as a marination for tikkas. But I didn’t find it very appealing as butter masala is generally mild.

Then I got this idea of making cutlets and use this masala powder to a make a creamy sauce.

Am so glad that I let my creativity take over because the result was awesome. The cutlets were truly melt in mouth and yummy and butter masala sauce was delicious. It had a very appetising aroma with a rich and creamy texture and was truly an beautiful icing on the cake.

My family loved it and I hope you all would like it too:)

To make the cutlets


Wash, peel and chop potato and carrot.

Pressure cook potato, carrot and peas till it’s cooked soft. Mash well.

Grate the paneer and add to the mashed vegetables. Add cumin powder, red chilli powder, garam masala, dry mango powder, maida, rice flour, oil and salt to taste.

Mix well and make a soft dough.

Grease your hands. Divide the dough into 12 portions. Shape them into cutlets, roll them on the semolina. Pat it well to spread the semolina uniformly and remove the excess.


Shallow fry the cutlets till both sides turn golden.

To make the butter masala


Mix one packet of butter masala with milk.

Mix well to ensure that there are no lumps.

Heat butter in a pan. Add the masala mixture and let it simmer well for 10-12 mins, till it becomes thick sauce. Add tomato ketchup, mix well and simmer for few mins.

Grate the amul cheese and add to the sauce.

Mix well till the cheese melts.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve the cutlets hot topped with the butter masala sauce:)
