For Gravy:

  • Oil – 2 Tbsp

  • Ginger Garlic Paste – 1 Tbsp
  • Onion (finely Chopped) – 1 big
  • Tomato Puree – 1/2 Cup (from two big tomatoes)
  • Coriander Powder – 1 tsp
  • Cumin Powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Heavy Cream – 1/2 Cup


For Marinade:

  • In a mixing bowl combine hung yogurt, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, ginger garlic paste, salt, lemon juice, oil, fenugreek leaves.
  • Divide the marinade in two equal portions and marinade the paneer chunks with one of the portions and the onion and peppers with the remaining marinade in another bowl separately.
  • Cover and refrigerate both of them in refrigerator for 30 mins.
  • Meanwhile Prepare the tomato sauce.

For the Tomato Gravy:

  • Heat oil in a medium sized wide pan, season with cinnamon stick, cloves and saute for 10 secs until fragrant.
  • Add in onion and fry till they turn soft.
  • Add Ginger Garlic paste and fry for 2 mins till all the raw smell is gone.
  • Add in the masalas (red chilli powder, cumin powder, coriander powder) fry for just 30 secs. Take care not to burn any of the ingredients.
  • Add the tomato puree and cook till the oil slightly oozes out at the sides of the pan (approx 5 – 7 mins on medium heat)
  • Dilute it with 1/2 Cup – 3/4 Cup of water and let the sauce simmer on LOW until we are ready with the fried paneer and vegetables.
  • Meanwhile lets fry up the vegetables in a separate skillet with 2 tsp of oil. Fry the marinated vegetables on high heat for a while and gradually reduce the flame to medium and keep stirring them and cook till they have the smoky flavor and are partially cooked. They should be still a bit crunchy.
  • Once the vegetables are cooked, pull them out from the pan and set them aside.
  • In the same skillet now start frying the marinated paneer. Fry the paneer till it turns deep golden color from all the sides.
  • Once done, take them off the pan and mix the fried vegetables and paneer with the simmering tomato sauce.
  • Add in cream, salt and bring the sauce to another boil. Check for salt and once you are satisfied with the consistancy turn OFF the heat.
  • Serve Paneer TIkka Masala with Roti or Naan or rice. Enjoy!!!
