Airfried Butter Paneer is a vegetarian Indian dish made with paneer, which is a type of fresh cheese, that has been marinated in a flavorful mixture of spices, yogurt, and lemon juice, then air fried until crispy. The paneer is then simmered in a rich and creamy buttery tomato-based sauce, which is infused with aromatic Indian spices like cumin, coriander, and garam masala.
The dish is typically garnished with fresh cilantro leaves and served hot with steamed rice, naan bread, or roti. It’s a popular vegetarian option in Indian restaurants and can also be easily made at home with the help of an air fryer.
The air frying technique used in this recipe helps to create a crispy exterior on the paneer without the need for deep frying, making it a healthier option than traditional butter paneer recipes.
