Cottage cheese transforms into a tongue-tickling treat when marinated in spice powders and cooked crisp along with other yummy ingredients like capsicum and onions.

This, the all-time favourite Paneer Tikka, tastes awesome whether it is had plain or in a masaledar gravy as shown in this recipe.

A selection of whole spices and spice powders along with tomato pulp and cream give the gravy an intense flavour and lusciously creamy mouth-feel, which complement the crispy and tasty paneer cubes.

The Paneer Tikka Masala is a fantastic dish to enjoy with Whole Wheat Coriander and Sesame Seeds Naan .
