Tava Fried Paneer Tikka

>> Monday, February 21, 2011

Today I'm going to share our last weekend special... "Paneer Tikka".. I've prepared it number of times but this one is tava fried.. And I found it to be bit quick and more tasty, but yeah more oily, when compared to traditional paneer tikka.. So weight-watchers, try avoiding this method.

When it was served for dinner, Sree was so excited with the colorful combination of paneer and veggies arranged in skewers.. And if you've mint chutney  "Wah!" it's a perfect starter and you can easily please your loved ones and guests..

My mom used to prepare in Microwave and even I do but I felt tava fried is more tastier than any other method of preparing tikka..

Let's go to the recipe..!


Paneer - 200 gms, cubed
Red onion, small  - 1, cut into squares
Cherry Tomato - 4, split into four
Bell Peppers (red,green and yellow), cut into thick wedges - 1 cup

For Marinade:
Yogurt - 3 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Powder - 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
Kasoori Methi - 1tsp, powdered

Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Salt - to taste

Oil - for frying
Skewers - 3


In bowl, mix the ingredients for marinade. Mix well. Add the paneer cubes and toss well so that the paneer cubes are well coated with the marinade. Cover it and let it rest for 1 hour.

Heat a pan, pour 1 tsp oil, arrange the paneer cubes on it. Keep it on medium-low flame. Brush little oil over paneer cubes and turn them upside down. When done, remove from pan and keep on tissue paper to absorb excess oil.

Similarly, repeat the procedure with remaining paneer cubes and veggies.

Arrange them in skewers and sprinkle some chat masala.
