Paneer tikka recipe on tawa
Last week, I made paneer tikka  on tawa for the first time using gas stove .Even though I have an oven with microwave, convection and grill options, I din’t want to make use of it as it was my first attempt. So I tried in my new non-stick tawa. It came out very well. Paneer was perfectly browned & soft. I watched Sanjeev kapoor channel’s youtube video hosted by my favourite Chef Harpal singh. I had already tried Corn cheese balls following his recipe and it was a super hit among my family and friends. So I tried this recipe without any hesitation. He demonstrated the recipe using gas tandoor but I made the same in tawa.

Sendhil loved it and relished the tikka with green chutney adding curd. I became very happy and confident enough to try this recipe for my guests too. Soon I must try the same using my oven’s grill option and make a post here. Now lets see how to make paneer tikka using gas stove on tawa with green chutey as side dish.

  • Arrange the marinated pieces in a skewer or tooth pick. I placed paneer, then onion, capsicum and I repeated the same order. I finished it with a paneer piece. You can order them as per your wish. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a non-stick tawa. After the oil is heated, turn the flame to low. Keep the skewer and cover the tawa with a lid. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes.

  • Then turn the skewer and cook the other side till it turns golden brown. Keep turning every now and then till you achieve the color. Onions, capsicum, paneer would be roasted well and will give a nice smell. Remove in a plate and serve it really hot with green chutney to enjoy its best taste.
Alternate method : Instead of skewing all the veggies, you can saute each vegetable separately in oil and then arrange them in toothpick or skewer.
Green chutney for paneer tikka : Wash and take mint+coriander leaves in a mixie jar. To this, add all the other ingredients.Grind it to a smooth paste adding curd. Do not add water. Remove the chutney & serve with tikka.

  • Adjust the spices as per your taste.
  • If you don’t have tandoori masala, add garam masala instead. But tandoori masala works the best.
