For the tikka:


  1. For making paneer tikka:
    • In a bowl, combine the yogurt, besan, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice, red chili powder, turmeric powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, garam masala, and salt. Mix well to form a smooth marinade.

    • Add the paneer cubes to the marinade, ensuring each piece is well coated. Allow the paneer to marinate for at least 30 minutes. For enhanced flavors, you can refrigerate it for up to 2 hours.

    • Preheat your grill or oven to medium-high heat.

    • Thread the marinated paneer, onion quarters, and bell pepper pieces alternately onto skewers. You can also use toothpicks if you don't have skewers.

    • Brush the skewered paneer tikka with a little cooking oil or melted butter on all sides.

    • Place the skewers on the preheated grill or arrange them on a baking sheet if using an oven. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the paneer is golden brown and the vegetables are slightly charred.

    • Once cooked, remove the skewers from the heat and sprinkle the paneer tikka with chaat masala (optional) for an extra burst of tangy flavor.

    • Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with mint chutney or your favorite dip.
