Hariyali Paneer Tikka, bursting with flavors of coriander-mint chutney, curd, and spices is a delicious and popular snack which is served with onion rings and lemon wedges as a party appetizer. Hariyali Paneer Tikka, as the name says, paneer is marinated using a green paste which is nothing but the mint-coriander chutney. The color of the chutney will depend upon the freshness and quantity of mint and coriander used. To get the more greenish color you can also add palak puree.
Paneer Tikka is my favorite vegetarian snack and I have prepared Paneer Tikkas so many times that I wanted to try something different, but with Paneer Tikka only.
I was planning to prepare some yummy snack for our Friday evening snack and luckily, I had all the ingredients and leftover from mint-coriander chutney in hand. What’s a better way to use Paneer other than preparing some tongue-tickling Paneer Tikka, that too for people like us who always love to indulge in a delicious snack?
Use the leftover Green chutney to prepare Hariyali Paneer Tikka or prepare a fresh one using this recipe of green chutney. While preparing green chutney, use green chilies to make it hot and skip adding red chili powder.
The preparation of Hariyali Paneer Tikka consists of 2 main parts- marinating paneer and veggies with the marination masala and then grilling or baking the marinated paneer and veggies. This is a very easy and fuss-free recipe. Marinate the paneer a day before and grill the next day, serve warm to your family and friends.
Did you notice that cute tiny bucket in which the green chutney is served? Not yet? Please, have a look. I tried painting a few white tiny buckets just like that and somehow they turned out cute and beautiful. 😀 I bought them from the Dollar store and paid $2 for 6 tiny buckets. I have always enjoyed doing these kinds of activities more than reading my coursebook during school days and somehow things always turned out great. 😀 I still enjoy doing such creative thing no matter how big or small creativity it is. Being creative is important! That’s all. 😀
