Paneer Tikka Masala Recipe:

Wash and cut 1 capsicum, 1 tomato and 1 onion into cubes.

Simillarly cut paneer (cottage cheese) into cubes.

Chop 2 Onions and 2 tomatoes.

Chop 2 green chillies.

For Paneer Tikka Marinade:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil and add 1/2 tablespoon ajwain. Put 2 tablespoon besan in it and roast the besan.
  • Switch off the flame and take roasted besan in bowl.
  • Add 1/2 cup curd to it.
  • Put 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder, 1 teaspoon kashmiri red chilli powder, 1/2 teaspoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon pepper powder, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder and 1/2 teaspoon kasuri methi.
  • Now heat 2 tablespoon mustard oil and add to the paneer marinade and mix.
  • Now put the capsicum, onion, tomato cubes and mix.
  • Add paneer cubes and mix slightly such that paneer cubes are nicely coated with the masala.
  • Let the paneer rest in marinade for 15-20 mins.
  • Now take a skewer and put paneer cube at the bottom then capsicum, after that tomato and then onion at the top. Repeat the process for all paneer, capsicum, tomato and onion cubes.
  • Heat 2 tablespoon oil on tava and place the skewers on it.
  • Let it cook for 1 min. Turn and cook it from all the sides. Be careful it should not get burned.

For Paneer Tikka Masala Gravy:

  • Heat oil in a wok.
  • Add pinch of cumin seeds and let it splutter.
  • Now put 2 finely chopped onions in it and keep stirring.
  • Once onion becomes translucent add 1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute till raw smell of ginger-garlic goes.
  • Add 2 chopped tomatoes and pinch of salt (very little) which will help Tomatoes cook faster. Add chopped green chillies.
  • Once tomatoes become soft and pulpy add 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 teaspoon red chilly powder, 1 tablespoon coriander powder and stirr.
  • Now add leftover marinade mixture if left and mix.
    Add 4-5 cashews paste and keep stirring for a minute.
  • Put salt as per taste and mix.
    Add little water for the gravy and mix.
  • Now remove paneer, capsicum, tomato and onions cubes from skewer and put in the gravy.
  • If you want you can add 2 tablespoon cream to the gravy to make it more richer but I m avoiding it here.
  • Give a gentle stirr so that paneer doesn’t break.
  • Now add 1/2 tablespoon garam masala and 1/2 teaspoon kasuri methi.
  • Garnish with chopped fresh coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
