Paneer Tikka Recipe

    5 Servings


  • 200 grams Paneer
  • 1 small Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 small Green Bell Pepper
  • 1 small Red Onion
  • 3/4 cup Plain Yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 piece Fresh Ginger, Finely grated, 1 inch
  • 1 clove Garlic, Large, finely minced
  • Chaat Masala, Optional


  1. Cut the paneer into 1 inch cubes and the vegetables in 1 inch pieces. Keep them in separate bowls.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt, coriander, cumin, garam masala, paprika, lemon juice, salt, ginger and garlic until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Transfer half the yogurt marinade into the paneer bowl and the other half in the veggie bowl. Mix each thoroughly to coat the ingredients. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least two hours or overnight.
  4. Preheat your grill on medium to high heat. Place paneer and vegetable pieces on skewers.
  5. Grill each side until browned. This should take about 3-4 minutes per side. Lightly brush with olive oil while grilling.
  6. Sprinkle with chaat masala. Serve warm and enjoy! 


  • You can also cook the paneer and vegetables in a nonstick pan on the stove if you do not want to grill. In this case, cook the paneer separate from the veggies and then toss them together.
  • Feel free to increase the spice level to your taste.
  • If you don’t have chaat masala, try sprinkling with some sea salt.
