Paneer Masala

Paneer Masala is a mouthwatering Indian delicacy where tender paneer cubes are sautéed and simmered in a savory Rupen's Masala sauce, offering a burst of flavors best enjoyed alongside store-bought garlic naan.

rupen's masala sauce


1 lb paneer, cut into cubes
2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
1 jar of Rupen's Masala sauce (about 350-400g)
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup green peas (optional)
Store-bought garlic naan, for serving


Heat 1 tablespoon of ghee in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the ghee is hot, add the paneer cubes in a single layer. Sauté the paneer cubes for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they turn golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to remove the paneer from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of ghee. Once melted, pour in the entire jar of Rupen's Masala sauce.
Add 1/4 cup of water to the skillet and stir well to combine with the masala sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil.
If using, add the green peas to the skillet and stir to combine with the sauce.
Carefully add the sautéed paneer pieces back into the skillet with the masala sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Once the paneer masala is heated through and the flavors are well combined, remove the skillet from the heat.
Serve the paneer masala hot with store-bought garlic naan on the side for a delicious and satisfying meal.
