PANEER TIKKA WITH TOMATO AND LEMON DRESSING – PHASE 2Jess Arroyo
250 to 300 gms paneer/cottage cheese
1 medium to large tomato
1 medium to large onion
For the marinade which will be coating the paneer and vegetables:
1 tsp curry powder
1/2tsp red chili powder
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 1/2 tsp lime juice
Salt as required
1-2 tbsp water
Prepping the paneer & veggies:
Slice the paneer into ¼ inch squares.
Halve the onion and thread onto the bamboo stick.
Slice the tomatoes and thread onto a bamboo stick.
Alternate the order of the paneer, onion and tomato.
Mix the marinade:
Add all the spices and herbs, stir and mix well.
With your hands mix very well, so that the marinade coats the paneer and veggies evenly.
Making the Tikka:
Coat the paneer and veggies with the marinade and place them in the oven to bake.
When one side is browned, gently lift and turn over. The paneer cubes will cook faster than the veggies.
Arrange them in a serving plate and serve the paneer tikka hot or warm with fresh lemon squeezed over the dish.
Approximately 2-3 servings
