Paneer Tikka (how to make easy paneer tikka)

Today’s recipe is ‘Paneer Tikka’. This recipe is a tandoori dish, in which freshly grilled or cooked paneer (cottage cheese) cubes are marinated in spices and yogurt and are then arranged on skewer with onion and capsicum. You can enjoy paneer tikka as starter or snacks. Tikka goes well with green (mint) chutney. It is a vegetarian alternative of chicken tikka, so you can prepare chicken tikka in same way. Traditionally, tikkas are grilled in tandoor, but I prepared my tikkas in microwave and on tawa both. Paneer tikka is a very healthy and low-calorie starter. This recipe needs only 30 minutes.
