Paneer Butter Masala , a wonderful vegetarian side dish for Chapati, Naan and other varieties of Rotis. Whenever I visit Punjabi Dhaba's I usually order Plain Naan with Panner Butter Masala. This is one of my favourite dish. I even tried once without adding even a bit of spice in this dish and it was still delicious.
