PANEER TIKKA MASALA

paneer-tikka-masala10

If you are like me, you love the idea of throwing party at your home. Party for me is a get together with family and friends, amazing food, and interesting conversation. I get really jittery when it comes to arrange a party without proper planning. So I just take time to understand the gusts in the list, plan food and theme accordingly. At the end of the day party is all about good conversation and good food…

Actually, there is a wide range of paneer gravy dishes in Indian cuisine; from those one dish guaranteed to be on every Indian restaurant menu with delicious gravy and that is Paneer Tikka Masala. Paneer is marinated in yogurt, lemon juice, chilli powder and turmeric powder to give it that iconic flavor of tikka masala. It is first grilled, and then cooked in a creamy tomato sauce. This dish is great for parties and will be a hit with guests also.
