Paneer Tikka Recipe – Paneer and other veggies are marinated in yogurt and spice mixture then later grilled.
I love paneer in any form, this one is very special, Paneer and other vegetables are marinated and grilled, it sounds nice and it also tastes heavenly. It’s very popular in restaurants. I am currently in love with capsicums, the color and flavor is too good to resist. So I decided to make this recipe. The recipe is quite simple, only the time for marination is quite more. But it’s good to marinate for at least 30 mins to 45 mins.
You can make this recipe either on tawa or in the oven (grill) as well. I tried both ways here. It came out really well. Use non stick tawa for better result. Make sure your tawa or pan is seasoned well, so that you can avoid the sticking part. And also use thick curd or yogurt, so that it gets coated well. I used a bit of gram flour, to get the crispness. You can either use it or ignore it.
