What Is Paneer Tikka? 

Paneer Tikka is an incredibly flavorful Indian dish made with chunks of paneer, marinated in spices, and grilled in a tandoor. It is a vegetarian alternative to chicken tikka and makes a delicious starter or side dish. The marinade can be tailored to your taste, and the paneer can be grilled, fried, or baked for a variety of different flavors. 

To start with preparation you need to have the ingredients mentioned below. 


  • Paneer 
  • 1/2 cup hung curd 
  • 1 tablespoon of ginger-garlic paste 
  • 2 teaspoons of red chili powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper powder 
  • 1 teaspoon of garam masala 
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon chaat masala powder 
  • 2 tablepoons gram flour(besan) 
  • 2 tablespoon kasuri methi 
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice 
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder 


For Marinade 

  • To prepare paneer tikka, you need to prepare the marinade first. So, to prepare the marinade, follow these steps: 
  • Combine thick curd as a tenderizer with ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, black salt, garam masala, pepper powder, mustard oil, spicy chat masala, and gram flour. Adding gram flour helps in coating the paneer well. 
  • Beat all these ingredients until it becomes smooth.  
  • Then, add kasuri methi and lemon juice to the mixture and mix it well. 
  • Add paneer to the marinade and again mix it well to coat the paneer well with the marinade.  
  • Refrigerate it for 30 minutes, and after that, thread your marinated paneer in a skewer, and then it is ready for grilling.

Follow these simple, easy steps to prepare paneer tikka using an oven: 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit 
  • Lightly brush a pan/tawa with oil.
  • When the tawa gets heated up, place the tikka skewers on it.
  • Inside the preheated oven, place the skewers on a baking pan.
  • Bake it for 15 minutes.
  • Broil at high temperature for 1-2 minutes.
  • Take out the pan with the skewers.

Now, you are ready with your oven-toaster grilled paneer tikka. Serve it hot with fresh green chutney and onion rings. 

Tips For Making Paneer Tikka 

  • You can use different appliances to make paneer tikka at home, including making paneer tikka on a grill, pan, tandoor, or oven. However, paneer tikka made in oven toaster grills tastes way more delicious. 
  • Cook your paneer and don't overcook it. Otherwise, the soft and succulent texture will become as chewy as rubber.  
  • Let the paneer marinate for 30 minutes. Then, if you have extra time, marinate it for two hours or more. This will let it absorb more flavors from the marinade. 
  • Remember to add besan(gram flour) to the marinade. It will ensure that the paneer and veggies are coated well and will stick to the pan.
