By far the most famous Indian dish there is. I don’t know if I’ve ever been to a restaurant where Chicken Tikka Masala and Paneer Tikka Masala haven’t been on the menu.
It’s a crowd pleaser and for good cause. Traditionally the paneer is made in a tandoor giving it an amazing clay oven taste and then it’s cooked in a rich, savory, and slightly sweet gravy. All in all paneer tikka masala is amazing.
I absolutely love this dish. I traditionally like my curry with meat but the rich creaminess of the paneer really makes this dish fabulous. It’s one of the things that I love about Indian food. There are so many amazing vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free dishes, that you really don’t feel like you’re missing out.
Not the easiest dish to make, given that you have to make the paneer first and then the curry. However, if there’s store bought paneer you like, you can always cut down your prep time by half and go that way.
Fun fact #92: People think/say/pretend this is an Indiand/Punjabi dish…it’s not, it’s British, and was a way to use older paneer :p
