       Whenever we visit to the nearby Indian street , Street usually smells  like paneer tikkas(he he),i mean paneer tikka aroma dominates others.To be true i never ordered paneer tikka masala while we go to restaurants.We order paneer butter masala ,my dearies favourite.While eating all you can eat/buffe lunch they serve this masala.People literally lick their fingers after eating creamy tikka masala( he he  me included )
       Paneer tikkas usually will be so plain (even though we marinate them for long ,adding spices)making tikka masala will be a good idea.Paneer tikka masala pairs well with any Indian flatbread, taste best with  phulkas or  plain paratha.
