Paneer Tikka

You will Need
  • 200gms of Paneer
  • One Onion,Tomato,Capsicum
  • Sour cream or Hung Curd
  • A pinch of Turmeric powder
  • Half a tsp of Chilli Powder
  • Half a tsp of Garam Masala Powder
  • Half a tsp of Chat Masala Powder
  • Half a tsp of Ginger garlic paste
  • Salt to taste
  • One tbs of Lime juice
  • Few Skewers
How to
1.Soak the skewer sticks in water to protect it from burning or turning black.Cut the paneer in to medium sized blocks.dice the onions,capsicum,tomato(remove the pulpy part ) into same size as the Paneer.
2.For preparing the hung curd hand half a cup of curd in a muslin cloth for an hour.Mix the sour cream or hung curd with salt,turmeric,chilli,both masalas,lime juice and mix well.

3.Marinate the paneer blocks with the above mixture and leave it in the refrigerator for half an hour. If you want, you can marinate the vegetables too.

4.Arrange the paneer and the vegetables in the skewer as shown in the picture.

5.Preheat the oven at 230 degrees and bake it for 12 minutes or until the edges of the Paneer becomes brown. We do not like the smoky taste too much, so mine has not turned black at the edges (like the ones in restaurants).We all like it this way so I stopped baking further. If you like it smoky, bake it further for few more minutes.
If you are making on the tawa heat the tawa spread few tbs of oil and shallow fry the tikkas with vegetables in the skewers.Turn on all sides and fry uniformly until required.
After baking sprinkle chat masala powder and lime juice on top and serve with green chutney and some onions.
