Paneer Tikka

This is by far the most favourite for my kids.

I abuse it as a bribe to get them to some chores at times 🙂



  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp roasted and ground cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 3/4 cup fresh curds (dahi)
  • 1/2 tsp ginger (adrak) paste
  • 1/2 tsp green chilli paste
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns (kalimirch) powder
  • 1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds (saunf) powder
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  • 1/3 cup besan (bengal gram flour)
  • 1 tsp oil
  • salt to taste


  • Combine the paneer and marinade in a bowl, toss gently and keep aside to marinate for atleast ½ hour.
  • On a satay stick ,arrange 3 pieces of paneer. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 3 more stays.
  • Heat a non- stick tava and cook the satays on a medium flame using oil till he paneer is light brown in colour from all sides. Serve immediately sprinkled with chaat masala and coriander.
