  • A Pinch of methi seeds
  • 1/2 tsp kalunji
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • Other ingredients
  • 500 g paneer cut into thick big cubes
  • 1 cup curd
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp besan
  • 1/2 tsp haldi powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchur powder
  • 1 tsp Kashmiri red chilly powder

How to make Aachari Paneer Tikka

  1. Whisk curd till smooth add ginger garlic paste, kashmiri red chilly powder ( it will impart a good colour) and one tbsp of roasted besan ( it will help in the curd
  2. Take a pan heat oil ( if you like mustard oil then you can use that for peculiar aachari flavour), put the all aachari Masala and saute for a min, then add onion and green chilly, saute till onions are slight brown, now add turneric powder, amchur powder, garam masala to this mixture. Switch off the gas and add this onion mixture to the curd mixture and mix well
  3. Add paneer cubes to the prepared aachari marination and gently mix to coat it well. Keep aside for 30-45 mins
  4. Now either grill these tikka's in an oven/ tandoor or else you can also make this in a grill pan or non stick pan by adding little oil ( allow the mixture/ marignate to dry completely and paneer to get charred). To get that smoky flavour of tandoor, one can also roast individually paneer ( with the help of tongs) pieces on gas flame for a sec
  5. Serve hot with onion salad and green chutney

My Tip:

TandooriSalad: thin julian onion,add redchillypowder, pinch of orangecolour, salt, lemonjuice & slit green chillies
