Paneer Butter Masala, Butter Paneer Masala, and Paneer Makhani; are three names for an excellent lip-smacking Indian main course dish. Makhani is the Punjabi word for Butter, where the etymology of this proper name for this dish is from. Paneer Butter Masala is the most omnipresent and famous dish in India. It is always on the menu of every Dhaba (small street side restaurant) in North India and every Pure Veg restaurant in South India. To prepare the sweet-spicy butter paneer masala, you need cardamom, cinnamon, onion and tomato puree, chili powder, garam masala, and of course, Paneer and Butter.

History says that Delhi's famous Moti Mahal restaurant chain first prepared paneer butter masala and; created it for the British population at the time, who had an inclination for Indian curry but could barely bear the spice.

This paneer butter masala is more waterless than some of the saucier styles of butter masala. The butter paneer recipe is slightly sweet and spicy. It is rich in flavor, aromatic in smell and the paneer is nice and bouncy. 

Butter Paneer Masala is a perfect main course item to be cooked for lunch and dinner parties and festivities. You can serve the creamy Butter Paneer Masala with tandoori roti, tawa roti, naan, garlic naan, or even kulcha. It also goes well with plain steamed rice or jeera (cumin) rice.

To all chaat lovers, this recipe is for you! Jhal muri is a popular street food widely enjoyed around India, though it originated in West Bengal. Jhal means spicy, and muri means puffed rice. Jhal muri is a spicy puffed rice snack that is loved by all. It just takes 15 minutes to prepare Jhal muri. Puffed rice, roasted peanuts, namkeen/mixture, boiled potatoes, chopped tomatoes, onions, cucumber, coriander, and a few other essential ingredients are used to make this.

Spice it up with Alco Jhalmuri Masala  to bring that authentic Kolkata flavor to your Jhal Muri. It will give an aromatic blend and add a spicy-chatpata flavor like street chat.


Take a big mixing bowl and pour in 1.5 cups of muri/puffed rice/murmure (whatever you like). Add 1/2 cup namkeen/mixture (any of your choice). Finely chop one cucumber, tomato, onion, and boiled potato. Add 2-3 green chilies (if you don't like spicy, you can skip it). Also, 1/3 cup of roasted peanuts will bring the street-style taste. 

Now sprinkle 2/3 tsp salt (as per taste) and add 2 tbsp of Alco's Jhal-muri masala to get the original Kolkata chat flavor in your Jhal-Muri. Spread 2 tbsp of mustard oil into the mix and add a handful of chopped coriander leaves. Add 1/3 cup Sev (use the tiny ones) and squeeze in 1/2 lemon juice. Give everything a good mix again, so the masala is spread evenly in the jhal-muri. 

Serve immediately, before the murmure is soiled, and enjoy the chatpata flavor of street food at home.

For most of us, lachha or layered paratha has always been a favorite option. It is flaky and layered, with a considerable amount of Ghee or butter spread before rolling and frying. It is a healthy and delicious layered paratha recipe made with wheat flour and spiced onions. It expands the popular layered paratha dish with spice-coated onion slices on top.
