Paneer tikka recipe in gas stove
Last week,I made paneer tikka 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 in TawaHappy.

  • 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 u 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,u can saute each vegetable separately in oil and then arrange them in toothpick or skewer.
For green chutney : 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.

Green chutney




Note


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