Pan Fried Paneer Tikka

Posted by

Okay Okay…I know…Paneer Tikka is made in Tandoor/ Oven but since not everyone has a tandoor/ oven so I decided to try this easy method and thought of sharing with you all. 🙂 Generally, for Tikka’s we cut paneer into cubes…right? because it’s easy to marinade and cook. But there is no rule that you should always cut paneer into cubes. So I decided to slice the paneer into a triangle…A BIG triangle 😀
Serve this mouthwatering yummylicious Pan Fried Paneer Tikka’s as snacks with your cup of tea/ coffee (I won’t mind a cup of tea though 😛 ) and SKIP THE DINNER because it’s high in calories and fat so I suggest you have it when you are really hungry.
As soon as you finish making it serve and empty the plate because it’s best enjoyed when it’s HOT 😀

Learn Step By Step Recipe With Pictures For Pan Fried Paneer Tikka
Step 1- Slice the paneer into triangles. Just like you slice the bread for a sandwich. And using a fork prick the paneer slices. This will help the paneer to absorb the masala well

Step 2- In a bowl take greek yogurt/ thick curd and add tikka masala, garam masala, Kashmiri red chili powder, turmeric powder, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice and salt as required and mix well

Marinade the paneer slices and capsicum cubes well with the masala and refrigerate for 2-3hours or leave overnight if using homemade tikka masala

Step 3- Take out the marinated paneer out of the fridge. heat oil/ butter in a pan/ tawa and shallow fry the paneer slices and capsicum from both the sides until golden brown

On a plate spread the grated veggies and serve the paneer slices on the top with Garma-garam chai 🙂
