What can I say about this dish, the name says it all – Paneer Tikka Masala. Marinated Paneer cubes along with veggies are grilled till toasty and then sauteed in onion-tomato based cream sauce, yum!! Tweak up the recipe by giving a smoky taste to the grilled paneer (dhungar method). By following this method you can taste the smoky paneer in every bite. It’s so delicious and full of flavors that while cooking, it’s aroma will fill up your house and make your mouth watery.
Paneer is an all time favorite ingredient in my family and is always deliciously relished. Traditionally this dish is prepared in butter, but keeping the health of my family in mind I have added oil and half the quantity of cream and butter. No doubt, extra cream and butter altogether takes this dish to a whole new level and if allowed to simmer for longer time paneer soaks in all the rich, and creamy flavors.
Paneer can easily be substituted with tofu and same way cashew paste can be substituted with almond paste. I have kept the spice level on the mild side, but spices can be adjusted according to your preferences. Enjoy this easy and simple Paneer tikka masala recipe for dinner today which is very flavorful, tasty and reheats pretty well.
