PANEER TIKKA MASALA! Im not going to lie and say this recipe is quick, or easy. I will however, promise you that this labor of love is worth it! This recipe has got butter, cream and all the good stuff and it freezes incredibly well too so if you have leftovers (which you most definitely will because I swear I only know how to cook for like 6 people at a time) definitely throw it in the freezer! This meal tastes delicious with some Naan (Stone Fire Naan are my faves- score a great deal at Costco!) and with rice!
PRO TIP: Make this like 4-6 hours before serving because letting all these flavors really blend together makes for much better flavor!
Here are some things to not mess up in this recipe:
- Don’t RUSH! When I say to saute onions for 20 minutes, I really do mean 20 minutes. Leaving your onions too raw will make a significant difference in taste- so just sit on a stool if you have to, but take your TIME with all the steps in this recipe. Ive made the directions a little lengthy so I can properly explain each step!
- GARLIC! Let this be the first step because there is a crazy amount of garlic in this recipe- so get to peeling or take a shortcut and get pre peeled garlic and then throw it in a mini chopper to get it nice and minced.
- BUTTER & CREAM- just do it. If you can use some KerryGold butter I’ll be really, really proud.
