Paneer Tikka in oven

Indian starters are an epicurean's delight! they make a perfect start to a meal.. and who could resist the very own Indian cottage cheese' Paneer' and the delicacies that  tickles your taste buds? here you go.. I had tried this for a couple of times earlier but was not very satisfied with the outcome although the taste was  uncompromising! so this time when I got it right I was just as much delighted! I made this Paneer Tikka in the oven unlike the conventional stove top method. I used the broil option, which gave it the golden brown tinge and  also made it perfectly crunchy enough to savour. Go ahead, wallow in the ecstasy of Paneer Tikka! :) 

Paneer 500 grams
Sour cream 2-3 tblsp
Red Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Chat Masala 1 tsp
Turmeric powder ½ tsp
Black pepper powder 1 tsp
Ajwain seeds 1 tsp
Lemon juice One portion of lime
Salt and oil As needed
Cherry tomatoes, onions, green bell pepper 1 cup each
Metal Skewers 3-4

  1. For the marination, Mix the sour cream, red chilli powder, turmeric, chat masala, pepper powder,lemon juice,salt,ajwain and a tblsp of oil.

  2. Grease the baking pan and the skewers with oil. Arrange Onions, capsicum, tomato on the skewer as shown in the picture along with marinated paneer and refrigerate for about half an hour.

  3. Turn on the broil option in the oven and broil them for 7-10 minutes ( keep an eye on it in between to make sure it doesn't get burnt)

  4. Enjoy while its hot. You could even serve them with green chutney.
