How to make Paneer tikka

  1. In a bowl, add the hung yogurt.
  2. Add the ginger-garlic paste to it along with salt, carom seeds, black pepper powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, corinder powder, garam masala, kashmiri red chilli powder, dry mango powder, chaat masala, lemon juice, fennel seeds powder, crushed fenugreek leaves, gram flour and some fresh coriander and whisk all the ingredients well. Also add a little oil to the marinade.
  3. To this, add the paneer cubes, onion, capsicum and some fresh coriander and gently coat them with the marinade. Cover it and let it marinate in the refrigerator atleast for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Once marinated for enough time, preheat the oven at 200 degrees celsius for around 10-12 minutes. Using a skewer, skew the paneer pieces and the vegetables alternatively.
  5. Brush a non-stick pan with some oil and place the skewers on it and keep flipping them from time to time.

My Tip:

We can prepare this in an airfryer as well.
