The Tawa Paneer Tikka is a tandoori dish that makes for a great appetizer at parties and family gatherings. One of the more popular dishes of Indian cuisine, Paneer Tikka has been reinvented and recreated by restaurants across the world. Paneer is a very versatile ingredient that can be cooked in innumerable ways.

The Tawa Paneer Tikka takes this versatile ingredient and presents it in a way that is both healthy and delicious. The step-by-step guidance given by her to create this healthy snack is clear and easy to follow. The key to making the perfect Tawa Paneer Tikka lies in the marination of the paneer cubes.

This easy recipe of Tawa paneer tikka is given by our home chef Saba Rehman which requires only 2 minutes for cooking.

In a country that is dominated by vegetarians, paneer is a rich source of proteins. Though a vegetarian diet is comparatively healthier than a non-vegetarian one, one of the major issues facing vegetarian people is that they lack sources of proteins. Lentils and paneer are the only food items that provide proteins to people following a vegetarian diet. Paneer helps to strengthen bones and teeth. The protein content of paneer makes it extremely beneficial for weight management and improving metabolism in both children and adults alike. Paneer helps to lower the risk of cancer but also improves heart health by reducing the risk of heart diseases and controlling blood pressure. Paneer also has a host of benefits for kids and should be included in their diet as well. By providing nourishment and improving growth and development among children, paneer helps to strengthen immune systems and prevents malnutrition in children. But apart from nutritional benefits, paneer also has lots of benefits for skin and hair. The Vitamin B, proteins, fatty acids and antioxidants present in paneer help to promote healthy hair and skin and also have anti-ageing benefits such as prevention of wrinkles.
