Pan Seared Tandoori Paneer Tikka

Stir-Fried Tandoori Paneer Tikka

Spicy Paneer (Cottage Cheese) with Zucchini, Green Peppers and Onions.


Paneer cut into cubes
1 green capsicum cut in cubes
1 zucchini cubes
1/2 onion cut in cubes

1 tablespoon (tbs) yogurt
1/2 teaspoon (tsp) ginger & garlic paste
1/4 tsp turmeric*
1/4 tsp red chili powder*
1/4 tbs coriander powder*
1/4 tsp cumin powder*
1/2 tsp aamchur* (mango powder)
1/2 tsp Shan Tandoori Masala*
1/2 tsp Shan Tikka Masala*
1 tbsp of lemon juice
Salt to taste

*you can add or reduce spices as per your wish – I don’t usually use accurate measurements. If the marinade tastes too spicy you can add a little extra yogurt.

Spray a grill pan with olive oil.
Place the vegetables on the hot pan and wait till the vegetables have browned a bit on either side.

Sprinkle with Shan Chaat Masala before serving.

    how long did you marinate the veggies and paneer? (does the paneer absorb the flavor?)

    • Foodie says:

      Just for 20 mins.

      Paneer is coated with flavor due to the spices and it gives it a nice crust.

      Paneer absorbs the lemon juice even if you don’t add it to the marinade and just squeeze the juice on top later on.
      Even the chaat masala and Aamchur powder gives a bit of tartness to the paneer.
