This paneer tikka preparation will be a delight for all the die-hard paneer eaters to enjoy and relish authentic flavours as it is prepared in the Soofiyani style influenced from the Mughlai cuisine.


The marination is the key element in actually letting out aromatic flavours. Thick hung curd combined with spices, warmth of cumin powder and shahi jeera along with interesting flavour of Kasoori methi, dash of lemon juice and roasted chana dal powder, all mixed together makes a nice coating around the paneer cubes and vegetables to bake.
