Paneer Tikka Masala

Long time no paneer recipe posted here so thought this time would post the most favorite and the famous Paneer Tikka Masala recipe. Ok this one is a short cut, but the taste is almost the same. The ,marination of an authentic Paneer Tikka Masala makes it different , but this one even without marination gave me a smoky flavor. Do try if you are pressed for time, this one wont disappoint you.

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
