Paneer is a blessing for all vegetarians out there, and when it comes to snacks, paneer tikka is their first choice. We love to pick it at parties or order it in restaurants to start our meal. But, we are unable to have this paneer delight due to the ongoing lockdown. If you are craving for the restaurant-style paneer tikka, why not make it yourself at home? To help you out, the famous 'Dhaba' restaurant shared its paneer tikka recipe Chef Ravi Saxena with us and we are gladly sharing it further with you all.
Watch: How To Make Restaurant-Style Paneer Tikka:
You'll be surprised to see how easy it is to make paneer tikka at home. If you have tandoor or grill or oven at home, you'll get the perfect paneer snack with an invigorating smoky aroma and spicy flavours. If you don't have any of these equipment, you can still make it in on tawa or pan by roasting the skewers laden with marinated paneer cubes on a greased pan.
You just have to first smear paneer in a mixture of yogurt and some Indian spices. Then insert skewers in the masala paneer and put them in tandoor for few minutes. It's that simple and quick.
