Chili Paneer Butter Masala (Without Onion-Garlic)

Paneer butter masala is a very famous delicious creamy dish from Norther part of India which can be prepared for any party or special occasions . This recipe is loved by all and especially kids who love sweet creamy sauce with paneer. This dish is available in every Indian restaurant. I have already shared a recipe of Paneer butter masala which is with onion & garlic however this dish is specially prepared for those who don’t eat onion and garlic either during Navratri period or otherwise. In this recipe I have also added bell peppers along with paneer. Bell peppers gives a nice aroma and wonderful flavor to this dish. To give a natural red color, I have add beetroot which gives a scrumptious red color to curry. Without onion-garlic as well this dish comes out to be so yummy and tasty. Chili Paneer Butter Masala goes very well with jeera rice, naan, roti or parathas.
