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.

How to make paneer for Punjabi matar paneer tikka masala

    How to make paneer for Punjabi matar paneer tikka masala
  1. To make paneer, rinse a deep non-stick pan with ¼ cup of water and quickly simmer it for 2-3 minutes. This will prevent milk from getting burnt as the water forms a protective layer between the pan and milk. This is generally done in stainless steel pans but, if you have an old non-stick pan it is advisable to make this extra effort so, that the milk does not burn.
  2. Rotate the pan in a clockwise motion, so the water spreads evenly in the pan. Discard the water and pour 2 liters of full fat-milk. Full fat milk is highly recommended while making paneer as it yield more chenna after curdling resulting into a thick block of paneer.
  3. Bring it to a boil on a medium high flame. This would take around 8-10 minutes. Learn how to make paneer at home.
