Paneer tikka masala
Note:

  1. You can add curd instead of sour cream.
  2. If using curd, hung the curd for 20 minutes in a cloth.
  3. Don’t add too much of cream/curd as this will make the tikka soggy .
  4. Don’t omit the tandoori masala, it gives out the real flavor of the tikka.

  1. Oh i missed so many posts in ur blog. Going thro everything i missed. This paneer tikka is awesome. nice color. I'll surely try this. thnx for the stove top method 🙂

  2. very nice clicks…. and tikkas came out perfect…

    good to try in ordinary tawa…. if you have posted before, i would have saved my money from buying oven….

  3. Oh so you have individually sauté ed the paneer and veggies in a pan, that is a lot of patience. i have always grilled the kebabs whole. This way your tikkas are all uniformly done. very nice.

  4. I wanted to make this tikka, but the tandoori masala available here is tandoori chicken masala. I don't know if we can use it? Can you suggest some other alternate to tandoori masala?

    • Actually i have checked the ingredients of the Tandoori chicken masala once it doesn't have any non-veg. Though i didn't buy i think u can check the ingredients and try with that. Else barbeque masala will work out
