Paneer tikka masala has always been a comfortable main course for all Indians. As a matter of fact, there are so many variations to make this luscious red gravy. But today I am going to show you how to make this mouth-watering paneer tikka masala – the restaurant style. Cottage cheese or what we call paneer in India is a dairy product made from cow or buffalo milk. If you prefer the vegan option, you can always opt to replace the cottage cheese with other items, for example – tofu. Although, I personally prefer cottage cheese instead of tofu. For the tofu recipe, click here.

The red gravy used in this recipe is surprisingly versatile. It can be used to make chicken tikka masala, mixed vegetable curry and make other main course curries. I remember posting a yellow gravy recipe – Paneer butter masala. Even though both the recipes sound the same, they are quite different in both taste and flavour.

How to make rumali roti with paneer tikka masala at home?

Paneer tikka masala is an easy main course dish to make and does not involve a huge process. However, the paneer tikka masala made at a restaurant uses a tandoor to grill the cottage cheese. The red gravy can be made at home and instead of using the tandoor, we will be grilling the paneer tikka on the tawa.

Rumali roti is an Indian flat bread. To note, rumali roti is a really thin bread usually eaten with gravy. Moreover, It takes huge skill to master how to make this type of roti. However, restaurant-style rumali roti is made on a huge wok turned upside down. Understandably If you do not have a wok at home, do not fret. I am going to show you how to make restaurant-style rumali roti using a big kadai. We can also use a pan or a tawa to make this roti and trust me, it will be to be the same as making one on a wok or kadai. Not to mention, It goes really good with our main course curry – paneer tikka masala.

Now, without any further ado, let us dive into the recipe.
