Tips for green peas paneer tikka masala. 1. Use fresh paneer only, for best results. Dry paneer will break while cooking. 2. You need to use thick curd for the marinade of paneer tikka. You can even opt for hung curd. If you are making hung curd at home, ensure that you tie and hang the curd for at least an hour to get the perfect thick curd. That will coat the paneer pieces very well. 3. Prefer to use Kashmiri chillies to get the true red colour of the gravy. 4. Cabbage can be replaced with cauliflower if you wish to. 5. After adding cornflour mixture, remember to stir continuously so the mixture doesn’t turn lumpy.
