Paneer Tikka

Paneer tikka is one of my favourite starter which i never forget to order whenever we go to Indian restaurant here, i can die for this delicious starter..Prefect for a party menu, i tried making this paneer tikka in oven just to skip the shallow frying in a tawa, making this paneer tikka through oven makes the life simple and easier, you make a bunch of this skewers in oven easily and quickly,just you need to marinate cubed paneer in a mixture of spices and yogurt, bake them for 15-20minutes in a preheated oven your paneer tikka is ready to enjoy..Quite an easy and delicious starter na..


30nos Cubed Paneer
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Tandoori masala powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
3tbsp Thick yogurt
1/2tsp Crushed ajwain seeds
1/2tsp Chaat masala
Salt
Oil
Cubed capsicum (as per need)
Cubed onions (as per need)
Skewers

Take the thick yogurt, all the spice powders,salt,ajwain seeds and paneer pieces,mix everything well and keep aside for three hours..Soak the skewers in water to prevent burning while baking..

Preheat the oven to 400F, arrange the paneer cubes,capsicum and onions in skewers, brush them generously with oil and bake them for 15-20minutes..

Enjoy them hot with green chutney..

Shouldn't the onions and the capsicum be salted or mixed with a dab of spice before grilling ? I have never tried this before and am worried that while the paneer is seasoned, the other veggies would end up being bland.
