PANEER TIKKA (MADE IN TAWA)

         I am a great fan of  all paneer dishes, especially this tikkas are my most favorite. Since i dont possess a Oven with grill, i wanted to try this tikka on the stove top, by using a non stick tawa. So many times i have made this, and it always came out very nicely.

I used the panner cubes to make these tikkas.

INGREDIENTS:

PANEER CUBES 3/4 CUP
SOUR CREAM 2 TBLSP
TANDOORI MASALA 1/2 TSP
REDCHILLI POWDER 1/2 TSP
CHAT MASALA 1/4 TSP
CAPSICUM 1/2 NO CUBED
ONION 1 NO. CUBED
OIL 1 TBLSP
KASOORI METHI 1/4 TSP
SALT AS NEEDED

paneer tikka

Method:

  • Take the paneer from the freezer and keep it outside till it comes to the room temperature.
  • Once it reaches the room temperature add the sour cream to it.
  • Add the red chilli powder, chat masala, tandoori masala and kasoori methi and salt to this .
  • Mix this very well. Take care the masalas should get evenly coated.

  • Allow this to marinate for 1 hour.
  • Keep it in the fridge.
  • After an hour, take it out  and heat a tawa.
  • Place the paneer pieces on the tawa by arranging it on the tawa.
  • Add a few drops of oil ,for each batch(if you want)

  • keep the flame very low.
  • When it is done on one side, carefully flip it on the other side, using a spoon.
  • Repeat this for all the other sides of the paneer cubes.

Note:

  1. You can add curd instead of sour cream.
  2. If using curd, hung the curd for 20 minutes in a cloth.
  3. Dont add too much of cream/curd as this will make the tikka soggy .
  4. Dont omit the tandoori masala, it gives out the real flavor of the tikka.

  9. Looks yummy. I agree dear the tandoori masala takes the tikka to the next level. When using tava I insert the paneer in the skewer and then roast it, comes out good.

  34. Oh so you have individually sauté ed the paneer and veggies in a pan, that is a lot of patience. i have always grilled the kebabs whole. This way your tikkas are all uniformly done. very nice.

  35. I wanted to make this tikka, but the tandoori masala available here is tandoori chicken masala. I don't know if we can use it? Can you suggest some other alternate to tandoori masala?

    1. Actually i have checked the ingredients of the Tandoori chicken masala once it doesn't have any non-veg. Though i didn't buy i think u can check the ingredients and try with that. Else barbeque masala will work out
