Couple of weeks before we had bbq party at our friends home and I prepared these..To my surprise Paneer tikka stood as star recipe of the day…It was a big hit and everyone fell head over heels on the these tikkas..:) Sprinkle chaat masala and some lemon juice on it and relish it with mint chutney, Tastes absolutely divine, so here we go Paneer tikka bursting with flavor for die-hard-paneer lovers!!
Tandoori Paneer Tikka Recipe – Spiced Skewered Grilled Cottage Cheese Recipe
Preparation Time : 2-4 hrs
Cooking Time : 10 minutes
Serves : 4
1. Melt butter in a pan and add the ajwain seeds and gram flour and roast it in a slow flame for a minute till you get a nice aroma. (Note : Care should be taken not to burn the gram flour; the best way is to stir continuously and take the pan off the heat, back to the heat time and again). Allow this to cool.
8. Broil the Paneer in the oven on high for 8-10 minutes each side. (Note : Temperature setting and cooking time may vary depending on oven so adjust the timing accordingly.)
This recipe works very well for the chicken tikka as well.
The Paneer and the Tandoori Masala can be made at home or can bought at any Indian grocery store. Here I have used store bought paneer and tandoori masala.
