Tips for making perfect paneer tikka:

  • Use good quality paneer. The paneer should be firm and crumbly.
  • Use full-fat yogurt for the marinade. The yogurt will help to tenderize the paneer and add flavor.
  • Marinate the paneer for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight. This will allow the flavors to infuse into the paneer.
  • Grill the paneer over medium heat. This will help to prevent the paneer from drying out.
  • Serve the paneer tikka hot. This will help to preserve the flavors.

Here are some additional tips:

  • You can add other vegetables to the marinade, such as onions, peppers, or mushrooms.
  • You can also add some extra spices to the marinade, such as cumin seeds, coriander seeds, or cardamom pods.
  • If you don’t have a grill pan, you can cook the paneer tikka in a pan on the stovetop. Just heat some oil in a pan over medium heat and cook the paneer cubes for 2-3 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.

I hope this recipe helps you to make perfect paneer tikka at home!
