Paneer tikka recipe – popular North Indian starter or snack that can be made at home very easily. I have shared two methods: in the oven and on the stove top.
If you are not familiar with this: marinated paneer cubes and veggie pieces are grilled in tandoor (clay oven). So basically this is called tandoori paneer tikka. But at home we do not have tandoor, so we will be making it without tandoor and you will not have to compromise the taste and texture.You can grill or barbeque the tikkas or you can use grill pan. But I have made in the oven and also in non-stick pan on stove.
