Recipe of Paneer Tikka

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Garam Masala (Optional) 1/2 Teaspoons
Cumin Powder 1/2 Teaspoons
Coriander Powder 1/2 Teaspoons
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 Tablespoons
Yogurt (Curd) 3 Tablespoons
Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) 200 Grams
Tandoori Masala 1 Teaspoons
Chilli Powder To Taste
Salt To Taste
Onions 1
Green Pepper (Capsicum) 1


Cut Paneer into 1" cubes. Cut onions into 1" squares. Separate the onion by two sheath together. Deseed and cut capsicum to 1" squares (Can also include Red or yellow pepper if you like it colourful). Hang yogurt in a muslin filter for about 15 mins or until all the whey leaves. Now mix yogurt and all other powder ingredients and ginger garlic paste into a smooth paste. In a bowl, add Paneer, Capsicum, and onions and pour the yogurt mixture on it. Shake it slightly so everything is coated evenly with the yogurt mixture. Now leave this in the refridgerator for minimum 2 hours to 24 hours. The more you leave this mixture the better the flavour in the paneer (I prick the paneer through with the skewer while I leave it). PreHeat the grill for 10 mins in 275 degrees Celsius. Alternate on the skewer Paneer, Onions and capsicum. Leave a tray under the grill to collect the drips. As you grill turn once as the top turns golden brown. It takes 15 mins to get done. Serve with Iceberg Lettuce, slices of cucumber and lemon.

My wife, Girija, recently made chilly paneer fry after watching your video for our daughter's birthday and everyone not only ate but also took some home. It came out brilliantly well. Tks, Sanjay. I am looking for a video of you preparing Paneer tikka...but can't find one. can you help with one. It is always better to watch you prepare it rather than read your recipes..I shud also tell you that my wife prepared Dal Bukhara, the way you prepared it on video. That was also excellent. I have stayed and eaten at Maurya Sheraton Bukhara many times and my wife's preparation came out exactly as the original that I have eaten at Bukhara. Tks again to you, Sanjay. Pse help with video of paneer tikka..

I made this Paneer Tikka at my place in a grill. I used Skewers, but the paneer became too soft and broke into Pieces. The Paneer tikka was tasty to eat..
