Paneer Tikka - Indian Starter

Paneer Tikka - Indian Starter

 Paneer is my favourite ingredient to cook with. It is so versatile, easy to cook and tasty. Paneer Tikka has been in my list for a long time and at last I made this at home. The taste was out of world. Once you make it at home and have, believe me you will never eat it outside.


Thick Curd/Yoghurt - 1 Cup
Ginger - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic - 1/2 teaspoon
Kashmiri Red Chilly Powder  - 1 tablespoon
Coriander Powder  - 1/2 Tablespoon
Cumin powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Black Salt - 1/2 teaspoon
Dry Mango Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Chat Masal - 1/2 teaspoon
Carom Seed Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Capsicum - 1/2 (Diced)
Onion - 1 Diced
Paneer - 200 Gms (Cubed)

In a bowl add the thick yoghurt. if you dont have thick yoghurt, tie the yoghurt in a muslin cloth and squeeze all the water.

To the thick Curd add all the dry ingredients,ginger,garlic and mix well.

To this prepared marinade add the onion,capsicum and paneer and marinate for an hour minimum.

After 1 hour, arrange the marinated veggies and Paneer in the skewer and cook them in Rotisserie and grill mode in your Oven for 10 minutes.

If you don't have a oven, arrange them in a toothpick or wooden skewer and cook them in a Tawa/pan.
