Paneer tikkas tops the list of appetizers for the paneer lovers. This popular paneer recipe is prepared by marinating the chunks of paneer in hung curd with an array of spices and aromatics then grilled in tandoor till charred. No worries , if not having access to tandoor a super hot tawa or an electric grill will do the job perfectly !!! To get bite size paneer tikkas skew them on a tooth pick. Adding diced capsicum and onion gives an crunch to these juicy and flavourful tikkas. A quick tip to jazz up the flavour of marination add dry roasted besan(gramflour) and for nutty flavour add cashew powder. This also helps to bind the marination on paneer and veggies. Serve these spicy bites with yogurt-mint chutney dip, chili mayonnaise or tomato ketchup.

Prep time : 40 min

Cook time : 15 min

Servings : 4


  • 200 gm Paneer cut in cubes

  • 1 Tbsp ginger garlic paste

  • 1/2 Cup hung curd

  • 1 Tbsp paneer tikka masala

  • 1 Tbsp cream

  • 1 Tbsp cashew powder

  • 1 Tbsp dry roasted besan

  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 Tsp red chili flakes

  • 1 Tsp kasuri methi

  • 1 Tsp raw mango powder

  • 1/2 Tsp black salt

  • 1/2 Tsp white salt

  • Pinch of turmeric powder


1. Start with assembling all the ingredients.

2. Mix all the ingredients to get a smooth marinate.

3. Skew the veggies and paneer on tooth pick to get bite size tikkas.

4. Coat well the tikkas in marination.

5. Grill tikkas on hot tawa or an electric grill by brushing oil and turning all around to get golden brown and crispy coating evenly of the marination on the tikkas.

6. Serve hot with dip of your choice, I personally love it with yogurt-mint chutney dip.
