Ingredients to make Tandoori paneer tikka

  • 50 gms - hung curd
  • 50 gms - capsicum
  • 20 gms - onion

How to make Tandoori paneer tikka

  1. Whisk yogurt with hand whisk to a smooth consistency. Mix all the spices including 1/2 tsp oil in a small bowl.
  2. Gently rub the mixture over the paneer ,and let it marinate for 1/2an hour .
  3. Chop the capsicum and onion into dices, the size of paneer . Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 1/2 an hr.
  4. Arrange a piece of paneer on the skewer followed by onion and capsicum .
  5. Grease a pan / a grill and grill the skewers of paneer for 5 mints both sides,or until golden on a low flame .
  6. Serve it with your choice of salad or chutney.

My Tip:

If you are using frozen paneer soak it in hot water for 1/2 an hr and then continue . Use tandoori masala a per your choice . Be careful while flipping ,since its marinated in yogurt it tends to stick to the pan ,If it does so then use a knife to slowly release it . U can use regular metal skewers too for this .

Can this be done without grilling, on the pan on stove?
