Paneer Pepper Butter Masala is a North Indian dish which is a very good combination for roti, Naan or Rice. This dish is similar to Paneer Butter masala with slight difference. In this recipe, Paneer and colorful bell peppers are added to a spicy, colorful and flavorful red pepper spiced makhani gravy. I used fresh homemade Paneer in this recipe. It’s always better to make paneer at home than to buy it from outside. It is more hygienic and cheaper.
