Served as an appetizer Paneer Tikka is very healthy for kids and adults alike.



  • 1/2 kg paneer cubes, about 3 cm/1.5″ each
  • 2 tsp garlic paste
  • 2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • 2 tsp chilli powder tandoori masala
  • 1 tsp powdered black pepper
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • A few drops of red colour
  • 3 tbsp vinegar OR 1 cup yogurt
  • Oil for brushing
  • 1 lemon quartered
  • 1 onion sliced into rings – for garnish


  1. Mix all the ingredients, except the garnishes, and leave for 20-30 minutes.
  2. About 20 minutes before serving, place the paneer on a drip pan and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes. (Oven Temp: 400 F Degrees)
  3. Remove from oven, brush with oil and bake again for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill on a griller or a barbecue pit. (The drippings should definitely have a means of escape, or else the paneer will get soggy)
  4. Serve hot, garnished with lemon and onion rings
