Paneer Tikka (in Oven)



                              
                                                               
Today I'm going to share my favorite appetizer with all of you- Paneer Tikka. The light masala coating, sourness of lemon and the soft paneer brings out the best taste.


Serves: 4, Preparation time: 


Ingredients:
200 gms Paneer cut into square pieces
1/2 Red bell pepper, cut into thick wedges
1/2 Green bell pepper, cut into thick wedges
1/2 Yellow bell pepper, cut into thick wedges
2 Onions (cut into square)
8 cherry Tomatoes
4 Skewers (wooden / metallic) 


For Marination:
1 tbsp Cornflour
1/2 cup Curd (hung curd)
1/4 Garam masala
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1/2 tsp Pepper powder
3-4 Green chilly paste
Few drops of orange color
5-6 Garlic pods (ground to paste)
1" Ginger (ground to paste)
2 tsp Kasoori methi
Salt to taste


Method:
Mix together all the ingredients for marination and add paneer pieces. Marinate for 3-4 hours or for better results keep this in the fridge overnight. 
                                                                       Marinated skewers            


If using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for 1/2 hour, so that they don't burn during baking. Now oil the skewers and first insert one cherry tomato then colorful bell peppers, onion and paneer. Seal the end with another cherry tomato. Arrange the rest of the skewers in the same manner. Brush the vegetables with little oil and sprinkle some kasoori methi on top. Pre-heat the oven for 200 degree Celsius for 10 minutes and grill the skewers for 20 minutes. ensure the edges of paneer doesn't turn brown.. This is a very crucial judgement as over baking will make paneer hard and chewy. 
Serve hot with onion rings, lemon juice, pudina chutney and sprinkle some chat masala and red chilly powder if you wish.
