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.
