Having people over at home? Hosting a party? Or just feel like loading up on sugar, spice and everything nice? 😉 North Indian Cuisine offers innumerable choices of gravy varieties to pick from and all of them enriched by their own unique combination of spices.
Paneer Tikka Masala otherwise a.k.a Malai Paneer Tikka is a popular vegetarian paneer gravy prepared using juicy ripe tomatoes, fresh hung curd, and paneer marinated in yogurt paste with spices. Paneer is grilled/broiled/pan-fried until golden and added to the gravy sauce to soak up the flavor, finally, a dash of cream is all it needs!
The prep time on this dish is nearly 1-1.5hrs with a total cook time of 2hours since there are two parts to this recipe – Paneer Tikka and Masala prep.
PS: Paneer Tikka Masala pairs great with Tandoori Rotis, Naan (plain/garlic/butter), Pulkas, plain Parathas, Kulcha, Jeera Rice or plain Biryani Rice
