Tandoori paneer tikka

Paneer  always is a vegetarians first love.If you are hosting some vegetarian guests then the first thing that  clicks while deciding the menu is "paneer".

Paneer aka Indian cottage cheese is preferred as an healthier option for its high source of protein and calcium .Its a versatile ingredient and a must in the Indian household .The best paneer is the one made at home .since I have  stared making it I have never turned to the store ones .This recipe too I have used the home made paneer .

It provides endless variations as starter, in gravies or stuffed in parathas .you can even try the Mutter paneer .Kids love paneer the most because of its silky ,smooth and melt in the mouth texture .

Tandoori paneer tikka  is ,cubes of paneer marinated with tandoori spices ,yogurt and grilled to perfection .

Lets start cooking .......


  • 250 gms paneer 
  • 50 gms hung curd
  • 1 1/2 tsp tandoori masala
  • 1/2 tsp ginger- garlic paste
  • 1/2 tsp oil +for grilling
  • salt to taste
  • 20 gms onion 
  • 50 gms capsicum
  • 10 bamboo skewers 
  • lemon for garnish 


  1. Whisk yogurt with hand whisk to a smooth consistency.
  2. Mix all the spices  including 1/2 tsp oil .
  3. Gently rub the mixture over the paneer ,and let it marinate for 1 hr .
  4. Chop the capsicum and onion into dices of the size of paneer .
  5. Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 1/2 an hr.
  6. Arrange a piece of paneer on the skewer followed by onion and capsicum .
  7. Grease a pan / a grill   and grill the skewers of paneer for 5 mints both sides,or until golden on a low flame .
  8. Serve it with Ur choice of salad .


  1. If you are using frozen paneer soak it in hot water for 1/2 an hr and then continue .
  2. Use tandoori masala a per your choice ,my family prefers mild .
  3. Be careful while flipping ,since its marinated in yogurt it tends to stick to the pan ,If it does so then use a knife to slowly release  it . 
  4. U can use regular metal skewers too for this .
