As popular as this recipe is hence, you’ll find tons of ways to make it too. Everyone has their own special way but this is exactly how I make it and as per my friends-family, it tastes just like the way they serve it in restaurants.

Only with one catch, it’s actually healthier and you can definitely make it more than twice-thrice a month. Infact, you can freeze the cooked curry just like I do and simply thaw a night before or even same day and make a fresh batch.

The way I make this Paneer Tikka Masala Recipe is so simple that even if you’re cooking it for the first time, you would surprise everyone in a very good way 😉

For this particular recipe, you’d need something called ‘Kasoori Methi’ also known as ‘Dry Fenugreek Leaves’, which is easily available in any Indian grocers. This is the main ingredient that imparts such a fragrant, sweet and warm smell to this entire dish.
