Paneer Tikka

  1. Grind the onion, tomato and garlic to a smooth paste / puree.

  3. Add the spices – red chilli, garam masala, sugar and salt. Mix well and cook on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. You should be able to see the oil coming out of the sides of the mixture.
  4. Add a splash of water to make a sauce-like consistency.
  5. Add the paneer cubes and mix well. Let the mixture cook on medium heat for 5 minutes. Switch off.
