Paneer Tikka

A yummy starter with a hot bowl of soup is always a good combination and I'm a big fan of this combination.Had a block of paneer left in the fridge from long time and its nearing the expiry date,had to use it before.My hubby is not a big fan of paneer,but I love Paneer,hez not home for lunch today,so I got a chance to make my favorite food,so planned to make Paneer Tikka.


Paneer:1/2 packet(I used Nanak Paneer)
Capsicum:1 medium (cut into same size of paneer cubes)

For Marination:

Beaten Curd: 5 spns
Ginger Garlic Paste:1 spn
Chilli Powder: To Taste
Salt: To Taste
Tikka Seekh Kabab Masala: 1/2 spn- 1 spn(adjust to ur taste)
Red Food Color:A Pinch
Cumin Powder: 1/2 spn
Lemon Juice:1/2 spn


Mix all the ingredients listed under marination in a bowl and transfer this mixture into a zip lock cover and put the paneer and capsicum pieces in the zip lock cover and toss well so that all pieces are well coated with the marination mixture,and put them in fridge for 3-4 hours,this helps the paneer and capsicum to absorb the flavors.

After 4 hours of chilling time take out the zip lock cover from the fridge,heat the tawa and drizzle little oil,when hot put the paneer and marination mixture on to the tawa and fry till the mixture becomes dry.Turn the paneer pieces to roast/cook on both sides evenly.
Serve it hot with Green Chutney/Mint Chutney.
