Paneer Green Tikka
This mouthwatering paneer recipe is sure to become a favorite.
1 lb paneer, cut into ½ inch thick slices
3 Tbsp Green Tikka Masala
4 Tbsp oil for marinade
1 red onion, sliced thin
Juice of 1 lime
½ cup chopped cilantro leaves
Salt to taste
Prepare the marinade with the Green Tikka Masala and water to make a paste. Then add the oil and salt to taste. Add juice of half a lime into the marinade.
Add the cut paneer to the prepared marinade. Keep in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours to possibly overnight for the paneer to absorb the flavors.
Remove the paneer from the marinade. Then, either skewer them and cook on the grill at a medium high flame until it gets a char, or cook in a 375 degree oven for 7-10 minutes until cooked with some char. Baste with the extra marinade to prevent drying and add extra flavor.
Prepare the onions for the garnish by mixing the sliced onions with ½ of the lime juice and salt.
Plate the paneer and top with the sliced onions and the additional lime juice if needed. Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves.
Serve with some basmati pilaf and dal to make it part of a complete meal.
