Instructions
 

Instructions for Marinate:

  • Firstly, chop the paneer into square-shaped cubes.
  • After that, chop the capsicums and onions in square shapes and keep the chopped veggies and paneer aside.
  • In a large bowl, take the curd and whisk it till it becomes smooth.
  • Additionally, add roasted besan, ginger garlic paste, kashmiri red chili powder, cumin seeds powder, coriander powder, garam masala, black pepper powder, lemon juice, salt, sugar, kasuri methi, and mix well.
  • Further, heat up the mustard oil until it starts smoking, and then add turmeric powder.
  • Now add this hot oil to the marinade and spice mix.
  • Mix all the ingredients very well.
  • Further, add the capsicum, and onions and coat the all gently in the marinate.
  • Now add paneer cubes, and mix well gently.
  • Cover the bowl with a lid and let the paneer and veggies marinate for 4 hours or more in the refrigerator.

Instructions for Paneer Tikka Recipe in Oven:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F or 200 degrees C for at least 7-8 minutes.
  • If you are using metal skewers, grease them with oil very well or If you are using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for 15 minutes. This soaking process will prevent the wooden skewers from burning while grilling.
  • Place the aluminum foil over a baking tray.
  • Now arrange the marinated paneer, onions, and capsicums into the skewers.
  • Place the skewers on the aluminum foil.
  • Brush the tikkas with butter.
  • If you don't have skews then place them directly on aluminum foil without skewers.
  • Cook for around 10-12 minutes at 200 degrees C in preheated oven.
  • Turn them around, brush with butter and again cook for 5-7 minutes or until the edges of the paneer start to turn brown.
  • After that, remove skewers from the oven and transfer them to a plate.
  • Sprinkle chaat masala powder over the restaurant-style paneer tikka.
  • Finally, serve this yummy paneer tikka masala with onion salad, spicy and tangy mint chutney, and lemon slice.

Instructions for paneer tikka recipe on tawa, Stovetop:

  • Firstly, heat up a nonstick tawa/grill pan in low-medium flame and drizzle some oil and butter.
  • After that, place the marinated paneer, capsicums, and onions on the tawa.
  • When one side gets browned, gently lift and turn over. The paneer cubes will get cooked faster than the veggies. So remember to remove the paneer cubes as soon as they are golden from all the sides.
  • For the vegetables, you have to make sure that marinate on the veggies gets cooked well. So lightly press them while cooking.
  • If you want then you can cook the paneer cubes first and then the marinated vegetables. Pan fry all till they become golden.
  • Further, remove them on a plate.
  • I have not removed them on paper tissues, as the due to heat and moisture from the paneer cubes, they stick to the paper tissues.
  • While still hot, then skew the fried paneer cubes and veggies onto a skewer/toothpick.
  • Arrange the paneer tikka and veggies on a plate and sprinkle some chaat masala overm them.
  • Finally, serve this yummy paneer tikka with mint chutney, and onion rings with lemon wedges.

Notes

  • Make sure to marinate paneer and vegetables for at least 4 hours or extend till overnight for perfect restaurant style tikka taste.
  • Don’t overcook the paneer cubes as they become rubbery, dry and hard.
  • If you want the colour of paneer tikka to be bright red then add a drop of red food colour, which gives bright red colour.
