Paneer Tikka


Paneer Tikka
Paneer tikka can be best served as a appetizer or a starter and is loved by both vegetarians and non vegetarians. Can you imagine an Indian outdoor summer party without paneer tikka or chicken tikka as a starter? The enticing smoky flavor of grilled paneer and its tangy spicy marinade makes it everyone's favorite.Here paneer is placed on skewers and roasted along with vegetables like bell pepper, onion and tomatoes.


Ingredients
Paneer - 400 grams
Red bell pepper- 1
Green Bell pepper 1
Onion-1 medium

For the marinade
Roasted gram flour- 2 tbs
Ginger garlic paste- 2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/3 tsp
Kashmiri Chilly powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Garam masala- 1 tsp
Cumin powder- a pinch
Chat masala- 1/2 tsp
Yogurt- 1 cup (hung curd)
lemon juice-1/2 lemon
Mustard Oil- 3 tsp


Cut paneer into two inch thick cubes. Cut the veggies also into similar sized cubes.
Mix in all the ingredients listed under marinade  into a thick paste. Add the cubed paneer and the veggies and mix till it is all coated with the marinade. Cover and set aside for at least two hour
Arrange the paneer and veggies in skewers. First place paneer followed by the veggie(soak the bamboo skewers in water for at least half an hour or it may get burned easily ..you can use satay sticks or tooth picks).
Place these  paneer skewers in a drip pan or on a greased baking pan turn on the broiler and broil for 3 minutes. Slowly roll the skewers and broil till the other side start browning up. If you do not get it properly browned in the oven you can place on a greased non stick pan  and slightly tilt it towards the flame. Enjoy with chaat masala and chutney.

Hope you will all enjoy..

  25. hi suja, your paneer is great, love the idea of marinade and then grilled and dip in chutney to top it all. would like to try this out, but... i forgot, i dont have and dont know how to do paneer.. may be i use bean curd instead, what do you think?

  28. Thanks all for stopping by and for the sweet comments..
    @ Suhaina you guessed right,it is similar..I found that it is a good binding factor and has a good nutty flavor along with mustard oil..

  29. @Cookingvarieties thanks for stopping by..Bean curd is definitely a wonderful option.They have almost similar texture and I am sure would taste awesome..
    If you like try with paneer, you can use store brought paneer(any Indian grocery store) or you can make it at home by boiling and curdling milk with lemon juice.
