Zesty and Spicy Paneer Tikka Recipe Made Using the Goodness of Godrej Jersey  Ghee

Paneer tikka is a popular Indian dish that is often served in restaurants around the world. It combines traditional Indian flavours with a modern twist. Tikka is prepared using cubes of paneer (pressed cheese) that has been marinated in spices and charcoal-grilled in a tandoor. The spices used in this recipe are zesty yet not too overpowering so they leave you wanting more. The paneer cheese gives the dish a nice creamy texture while adding an extra layer of flavour to the already flavorful dish. Paneer tikka is commonly served as a party starter with chapati or rice and has many other variations. Paneer tikka masala is when it is served with a sauce, while paneer masala is usually eaten alone. Paneer tikka rolls are frequently served as a wrap, with paneer tikka wrapped in Indian bread. It serves as a meatless substitute for chicken tikka and other meat-based recipes. This recipe is perfect for anyone who likes spicy food or wants to try something new!

Tips to Remember

  • For the best restaurant-style tikka flavour, let the marination sit for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Adding a drop of red food colouring to the marination produces a brilliant red colour.
  • Moreover, include any additional vegetables you prefer, such as potatoes, broccoli, baby corn, or mushrooms.
  • Last but not least, paneer tikka should be served right away for the best flavour.
