Mint Paneer Tikka

Paneer or Cottage Cheese is a fresh cheese common in South Asian Cuisine.Mint Paneer tikka is so delicious and healthy.Traditionally,Tikkas  are grilled in a tandoor and the dish is thereafter served hot. Here,to make Paneer tikka,I used  Table top Grill ,which gives almost same texture to the tikka as it is made in tandoor.We can even use grilling pan,on stove top. Table Top Grill Ingredients Paneer- 200 g Ginger Garlic Paste-1-2 tsp Carom seeds(ajwain)-1 tsp Mint leaves -a handful Kasuri Methi( Dried Fenugreek Leaves)- 1 -2 tsp  Bell peppers,Onion Rings- Salt- to taste Yogurt-1/2 cup Red chilly powder- 2-3 tsp Chaat Masala(I used,Sindhi Biriyani Masala,it was what available at home :-) gives the same restaurant paneer tikka taste). Method Of Preparation For Marinade Make a paste with all the ingredients except paneer. Cut Paneer into thick square/rectangle pieces . Apply the marinade and keep this refrigerated for at least 1/2 an hour.
