  • 1 tsp ajwain (carom seeds)
  • 1 tsp kashmiri red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp jeera (cumin) powder
  • 1 tsp dhania (coriander) powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1 tsp dry mango powder
  • 1 tsp chaat masala

How to make Airfried Paneer Tikka

  1. take 250 grams thick curd/yogurt or hung curd in a bowl and smoothen the curd.
  2. add 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste or crushed ginger garlic to the curd.
  3. Add all the dry spice powders and black salt to the curd. below you see the following Indian spice powders in clock wise order- 1 to 2 tsp kashmiri red chili powder, 1 tsp coriander powder, 1 tsp cumin powder, ½ tsp garam masala powder, ½ tsp turmeric powder and 1 tsp ajwain/carom seeds. in the center is black salt.
  4. i feel that the redness is less in the marinade hence i added some more kashmiri red chili powder to the marinade. kashmiri red chili powder gives a nice red color to the food and its not hot.
  5. add juice of half lemon, mix and keep the marinade aside.
  6. dice the veggies (1 large red bell pepper, 1 large yellow bell pepper, 1 large green bell pepper/capsicum/shimla mirch and 1 medium size onion).
  7. chop 250 gms paneer/cottage cheese and cube them. I have used homemade paneer
  8. add the veggies and paneer to the marinade.
  9. Now add 1 tsp chaat masala
  10. Once everything is marinated well. Cover and keep the marinated paneer and veggies in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more.
  11. After 2 hours of rest, Arrange them in a skewer
  12. Preheat the Airfryer at 180 degrees C for 5 minutes. Brush the wire rack with oil. Place these skewers in the Airfryer and air fry for 5 minutes or till light brown.
  13. Serve the paneer tikka sprinkled with 1 tsp chaat masala along with mint chutney, onion slices and lemon wedges.

My Tip:

1. you can use baby corn, mushrooms, cauliflower, tomatoes, broccoli etc. 2. you can also grill or barbeque the paneer tikka. 3. You can also keep the marinated paneer overnight in the fridge. More marination, the better the flavors gets infused in the paneer and veggies.
