Paneer Tikka Masala

Paneer is loved by all in my family. We love all the different varieties of gravy dishes made using paneer. But my husband likes only Paneer Tikka.

I tried different dishes using paneer, hoping that he would like any of them. But he sticked on to Paneer Tikka all the time. When I saw this recipe, I thought to give it a try as he likes tikka, he might like this gravy too... and yes!!! he liked it a lot.

By the time I am posting this recipe, I have prepared this dish more than 3 times. It is a perfect combo with roti or naan. It tastes authentic and restaurant style. Try it out and let me know how you liked it.

Recipe Source : Vahrehvah


15 - 20 cubes Paneer
1 Capsicum (medium, cut into cubes)
1 Onion (medium, cut into cubes)
1 Tomato (medium, scoop out the insides and cut into cubes)

For Marinade

1/2 tsp Tandoori masala powder
1/2 tsp Lemon juice
4 tbsp. Hung Curd
1/2 tsp Ginger garlic paste
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
1/2 tsp Kasoori methi
Salt to taste

For the gravy

1 cup Tomato puree
1 Onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp Cumin seed/ Jeera
1/2 tsp Ginger garlic paste
1 tsp Coriander powder
1 tsp Red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
1 tsp Kasoori methi
2 tbsp. Coriander leaves (finely chopped)
1 tbsp. Oil
1/4 cup Fresh cream
Water as required

  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients mentioned in 'For Marinade'. Now add paneer, capsicum, onion and tomato into it. Mix well so that everything is nicely combined. Keep aside for about 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, spread the marinated paneer, capsicum, onion and tomato pieces on a hot non stick pan with little oil. Toss all the sides. When it turns golden brown colour, take off from the pan and keep aside.
  • For gravy: Heat oil in a non stick pan. Add jeera and when it splutter, add onion and ginger garlic paste. Saute till onion turns golden brown colour.
  • Now add tomato puree, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder. Mix well and let it cook till the oil starts to leave the masala.
  • Add water to adjust the gravy and add half of the fresh cream in it. Mix well.
  • Now add the toasted veggies and paneer into the gravy. Mix gently and let it simmer for sometime. At this stage, add water to adjust the gravy.
  • When everything is nicely combined, add kasoori methi and coriander leaves. Give a gently mix and take off from heat. While serving pour the other half of the fresh cream on top.
  • Serve it hot with roti or naan.

* I usually take the quantity of the ingredients as per my taste. So you can always adjust the spices as per your taste*
