Paneer Tikka is one appetizer which we always order when we eat out in India. This popular Indian appetizer is made with cubes of paneer & veggies marinated with yogurt and spices.



  1. Whisk the yogurt in a large bowl until smooth. You can use regular yogurt just make sure to strain it for several hours until you have thick yogurt left and then use in the recipe.
  2. Add all the ingredients for marinade to the yogurt- RUCHI ginger garlic paste, mustard oil, RUCHI coriander powder, RUCHI chaat masala, RUCHI kashmiri red chili powder, RUCHI garam masala, RUCHI red chili powder, RUCHI kasuri methi and salt.
  3. Whisk to combine everything together. Add in juice of 1 lemon along with chopped cilantro and mint. Mix well.
  4. Stir in the paneer cubes, onion and bell peppers.
  5. Mix until all the paneer pieces and veggies are well coated with the marinade. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for minimum for 1 hour or up to 4 hours. Overnight also works!
  6. After 1-2 hours, take the marinated paneer and veggies out of the refrigerator. Take a skewer and arrange paneer, onion and peppers on a skewer, alternating with each other.
  7. Make all skewers similarly. Meanwhile pre-heat oven to 450 F degrees. Make sure you pre-heat the oven for good 15-20 minutes.
  8. Arrange all the prepared skewers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spray the tikka with a oil spray. This is important so that the veggies don't dry out.
  9. Bake at 450 F degrees for 10 minutes and then turn on the broil. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes until paneer pieces look little charred.
  10. Remove from oven, squeeze lemon juice, sprinkle RUCHI chaat masala and serve with cilantro mint chutney.
