- Prepare a marinade by bringing together all the ingredients under Marinade leaving aside the chat masala. Taste and adjust the ingredients accordingly.
- Dip the paneer pieces in the marinade and set aside for at least 30 minutes or for 2 hours….
- Heat the pan with oil for shallow frying . Drop the paneer pieces in a batch of 8 , turn and fry until paneer coats brown on all sides. Repeat the process for the rest of the paneer.Drain them on to a kitchen towel.
- In the remaining batter , quickly dip all the onions and green peppers together and add them on the pan . The flavours from the marinade coats these two vegetables giving tikka an absolute blend.
- Using a spatula turn them after a minute on the pan making sure the veggies stay crunchy.Drain them onto a separate bowl coated with kitchen towel.
- Thread the skewer in alternates of paneer , onion and green peppers to suit your palate.. Sprinkle some chat masala and serve hot.
If you feel the the tikka has gone cold , place the thread skewer on the tava and give them a good rest and turn on all sides .
You could also use Tandoori Masala for the marinade if you have…
Kashmiri Lal Powder throws such lovely color to the paneer… I m in love with it..
