Paneer tikka masala is a delicious and spicy paneer recipe that is prepared with smoked paneer tikka cubes drowned in rich flavored spicy gravy. To start with the procedure, you need to marinate the paneer cubes and some veggies like green capsicum and chopped tomatoes. Now, it entirely depends on you if you have a tandoori grill or just a regular non-stick pan. After that, you need to cook the smooth onion tomato gravy, and later add the paneer tikka and veggies into the gravy and cook it for about 10 minutes or so. Make sure tikkas are slightly grilled, or else in the gravy, it might not look so tempting due to its dark burnt sides.
How to make Paneer Tikka Masala:
You can do this part in the afternoon time if you are preparing this for dinner. Now, after 5 hours of rich marination take out the bowl and rest it for 10-15 minutes.
Now, add the proper amount of edible oil and allow it to heat up nicely. If you got some skewers as well, you can put the marinated tikkas on them and fry usually, but if you do not have them handy at home, you can always put tikkas one by one, all together and cook them gently.
Allow them to get grilled from each side with a perfect light golden color. Do not overburn the tikkas; it will not look good in the gravy.
Keep the paneer tikkas aside now, and let's start preparing the gravy for paneer tikka masala.
