Paneer Tikka

Print Friendly and PDF
Paneer Tikka is my favourite starter,after all anything made with paneer is delicious and is usually a party hit appetizer.It hardly takes a couple of minutes to prepare if everything is available at home.I generally avoid using artificial colours and flavours and find alternate natural options instead.After experimenting with several recipes I came up with my own marinade recipe which added a good tinge to the Tikka.

400 gms diced Homemade Paneer (or store bought)
1 diced red bell pepper
1 diced yellow pepper
1 diced Green Capsicum
1 diced Onion

for Marinade:
1/2 Cup Hung curd
2 tbsp grated cheddar cheese(makes the mixture creamy)
2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste
1 tsp Lemon juice
1 tsp Garam masala
1 tsp Chat masala
1 tsp roasted jeera powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp green and black cardamom seeds powder(adds a nice flavour)
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp Kasuri Methi
2 tbsp tomato ketchup(added for natural colour)
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp chopped corriander(optional)

Dice all the vegetables and paneer into 1" cubes.
Mix all the ingredients required for marinade and carefully mix all the vegetables into it and then add paneer cubes and gently mix.Cover the mixture with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 4-5 hrs.prick all the vegetables and paneer into the skewers slowly,arrange according to your taste.Brush oil all over the pieces.Grill it for 20-25 mins @ 180 degrees.
Serve it hot with some salad and tomato ketchup.
