Amritsari paneer tikka masala is a popular Indian dish that is a variation of the classic paneer tikka masala. It is typically made with paneer (Indian cottage cheese) that has been marinated in a blend of spices, including yogurt, ginger, garlic, turmeric, and chili powder. The paneer is then grilled or roasted, and then added to a tomato-based sauce that is flavored with garam masala, cream, and butter.
The main difference between Amritsari paneer tikka masala and classic paneer tikka masala is the use of a blend of spices that is specific to the Amritsar region of India. This blend typically includes spices such as carom seeds, cumin seeds, and black peppercorns. The use of these spices gives Amritsari paneer tikka masala a more complex and flavorful taste.
Amritsari paneer tikka masala is typically served with rice or naan bread. It is a popular dish in India and is also becoming increasingly popular in other parts of the world.
