Paneer Tikka ;-)

The word 'Paneer' conjures up images of yummy dishes in my mind. I am a self-confessed paneer addict and so is my gorgeous soulmate Pallavi :-) I've been wanting to make paneer tikka ever since I read this funny post on her blog.

So !! Yesterday night was experiment time :-)It did not resemble the restaurant version in any way, and looked pretty charcoal-grilled but the taste was really nice. I also sauteed some onions to go with it. Since I used a small leftover block of paneer; I couldn't slice it as big and thick as I'd have liked to. But the result was delicious and it was a great accompaniment to parathas ;-)

And yeah Pallavi, I have mustered the courage to put up photos :) whatever it is, it's my piece of art ;-)

Here's the recipe :-)

200 gm Paneer cubed or into small thick slices

For the marinade:

4 tbsp thick curd
Appropriate measures of chilli powder, garam masala powder and salt.
Mix all together. I added tomato paste also to this [readymade paste].
The marinade needs to be really thick.


Slice the paneer into thick cubes.

Now prick the paneer with a fork and apply the marinade covering fully. Let it marinate for an hour or two. An hour is usually enough.

Shallow fry and enjoy it. Sauteed onion slices and capscium slices are also great accompaniments :D
