Paneer Butter Masala in a super easy way.

Tried the Zaiqa butter chicken masala to prepare the dish.
Needless to say the dish turns out lip smacking.
Even my kid for the first time finishes off her share of the curry.

1 onions – ground to paste
2 tomatoes – ground to paste

    1. You can check their facebook page. Zaiqa is available throughout India and recently they start shipping to out of India. You can order from them to get a home delivery of the spice of your choice.
