How to make Paneer Tikka on a Stove top

  1. Cut paneer in cubes.
  2. Wash the vegetables. Cut the onion in half and remove each layer one by one.
  3. Dice the capsicum/bell pepper, tomato and remove the seeds in both.
  4. Whisk the thick yogurt till smooth in a bowl.
  5. Add all the spices and herbs, besan/gram flour and salt and mix well. Taste the marinade and add salt as per taste.
  6. Add the diced vegetables (onion, tomato and capsicum) along with paneer then with your hands mix everything well. Make sure the marinade coats the paneer and vegetables evenly.
  7. Cover the bowl and keep the marinade in the fridge for 45 minutes to 3 hours. You can also keep overnight if possible.
  8. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non stick pan/tawa or a griddle. Place the marinade coated paneer and vegetables on the tawa. Fry at a low flame or medium flame.
  9. When one side gets browned, gently lift and turn over. The paneer cubes will get cooked faster than the vegetables.
  10. While still hot, then skewer the fried paneer cubes and vegetables on to a wooden skewer or a toothpick. Serve hot.

My Tip:

You can also have them straight away without skewering. Sprinkle some chaat masala and lemon juice on the paneer tikka.
