How to make Paneer Tikka-Oven and Stove top Method
Prep Time : 10 mins
Recipe Category: Starters-Snacks
Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Paneer -200 grams
Hung curd – 1/2 cup
Cornflour – 2 tsp
Red chilli powder -1 tsp
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Green Chilli paste – 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder – a pinch
Garam masala -1/2 tsp
Cumin seed powder -1/4 tsp (preferably freshly dry roasted and ground)
Carom seeds(Ajwain/omam)- 1/4 tsp (optional)
Oil for brushing
Salt to taste
Tomato – 1
How to prepare hung curd
Tie the curd in a muslin cloth and hang it over the sink for 2-3 hours to drain out the excess water.
(I used 250 grams Hatson curd to get 1/2 cup of hung curd)
Cut paneer into cubes. Peel and cut onion into quarters. Remove the seeds of tomato and capsicum and cut it in the same way as onions.
Keep the bamboo skewers dipped in water for half an hour to prevent it from burning.
You can put holes in the paneer before marinating as it tends to break if it is done after marinating.
Marinate the paneer and capsicum in it for 1-2 hours.
After 2 hours
Preheat the oven for 15 minutes at 180 degree C.
Arrange the marinated paneer and vegetables including tomatoes in the skewers alternatively. You can use any combination you prefer. Brush it with a little oil.
Now line the middle rack of the oven with aluminum foil, place the arranged skewers, turn the switch to grill mode and grill for 20 minutes (180 degree C) or until the edges of the paneer starts browning.
Remove from skewers, drizzle a few drop of lemon juice over it and serve with thinly sliced raw onions and green chutney. I love it without any side dish as it taste great on its own.
Stove top method or Tawa fried Paneer tikka
Note– Do not over cook the paneer as it tends to become rubbery.

Hi padhu, tried the stove top method. Tasted good, where to get bamboo skewers
You will get it in Nilgiris. I got it only from there.
I tired it..Yummy it was.. thank you
Hi Padhu, thanks for the recipe! Can we also make this using the griller that comes with bread toaster?
I have my own doubts but you can try and see.
Should only capsicum be marinated or tomato and onion too should be marinated? Please explain padhu.
Onion, tomato (remove seeds), capsicum, paneer all should be marinated.
