Paneer Tikka

‘Paneer Tikka’ – It has always been my favorite starter in Indian cuisine. How I love those spicy ‘b’ smoky flavors of marinated paneer pieces. I used to make it at least once or twice a month, but have been enjoying the marination as well as grilling process much more than before!

‘Longer you marinate, Richer it will taste’ I firmly believe in this tagline while making any sort of skewers! This time I kept my paneer in marination for more than 24 hours… and result was pretty perfect. It came out to be the best one till date…
