Tandoori Sizzler Plate | Tandoori Chicken And Paneer Sizzler


Don’t you just love when a hot sizzler food is served to you at a restaurant? Appealing and exotic it looks! Right? ❤ Tandoori chicken and Tandoori Paneer aka Paneer Tikka are the two most hot and famous starters of any Indian. I am sure you all must have tried them at least once in your lifetime. If not, then I would suggest trying this TODAY. 😀 And when I love these two starters equally and when the preparation is ALMOST the same then why not prepare both. 😛 I served them on a sizzler plate just to take the feel of the weekend and obviously to make it more appealing. A hot sizzling plate of Tandoori Paneer and Tandoori Chicken is perfect for this Friday night. 😉

Step 1- In a mixing bowl, take all the marinade masala ingredients and mix well. Make slits in the chicken leg quarters to absorb the marinade masala properly. Divide the mixture into 3 bowls and marinade paneer cubes, veggies, and chicken leg quarters separately

Keep the bowls in the refrigerator and leave for 3-4hrs to absorb the flavors. If you wish you can leave it overnight too

Step 2- Preheat oven to 450ºF. Arrange the paneer cubes, capsicum, and onion on skewers alternatively and place them on a cake pan. Keep aside. Place the marinated chicken leg quarters on a wire rack and place in the heated oven. Bake for 20mins and then turn the quarters and bake for another 25mins.

Turn the oven to Broil, place the paneer capsicum pan in the oven. Broil paneer skewers and chicken leg quarters for 10mins and then remove from the oven

Broiling gives the paneer and chicken an Indian style tandoori cooked effect. You can skip broiling and bake paneer skewers for 8-10mins at 400ºF. Baking time may vary depending upon the chicken thickness and size 

Step 3- Heat a sizzler plate and arrange the tandoori paneer and chicken leg quarters with some chopped onion rings and lemon wedges. Add few drops of melted butter all over the chicken and paneer


Garnish with some onion rings and lemon wedges and serve this sizzling Tandoori plate with mint-coriander chutney. Happy Weekend. 🙂
