MICROWAVE PANEER BUTTER MASALA (NO ONION GARLIC)

I was searching for a microwave version of Paneer butter masala and came across this recipe with no onions.Initially I was very skeptical in trying out this recipe without onions.In my opinion paneer side dishes will not taste good without onion.However this recipes proved my myth to be wrong.It was equally as delicious as the Restaurant Style Paneer butter masala posted previously
