    It turned out pretty good. I added some cloves, black pepper, greenchili, and some fenugreek for additional flavour and spice.

    Made it for my vegetarian brother and even my diehard meat eating husband had seconds. Tasty enough to receive compliments from everyone who ate it. Fantastic recipe!

    It turned out really great. I would definitely suggest substituting ginger and garlic pieces to ginger-garlic paste. Also I would suggest adding some red chili powder to the tikka masala to spice it up.

    It was easy to make and delicious. The best part is we did not have to deep fry the paneer. It tasted equally good with it being roasted.

    So yummy!! My only comment would be that it didn’t make a lot so next time I’ll double it!

    Tasty. Didn't have paneer so made it with lentils. Also added peas for extra veggies. Didn't fry the lentils but just added all the spices to the sauce instead. Used skim yoghurt. Made it again with paneer, used greek yoghurt, no cream. Delicious.

    I adjusted the spices a little to fit my tastes, but I really loved it. I will be making this again.

    This was very good and authentic. The flavor was perfect. I would make this again, but I think I would use some hot curry next time. I thought it needed more heat.
