Tikkas are authentic Punjabi snacks that are prepared in the tandoor. A tikka is basically any vegetable, paneer or meat marinated in a highly flavourful seasoning and grilled to perfection.

Here large chunks of paneer have been marinated in tangy marinade made of curds, chaat masala, kasuri methi, ginger and garlic and then cooked in the oven . Paneer tikka can be eaten as is with some chutney or can be rolled into a rotis and served as a Punjabi roll.

Great healthy recipe as panner provides the proteins for me. Being a Vegetarian its a great source of protein for me and its easy to digest. The beauty is that everyone also likes Paneer Tikka which is very popular in the UK and USA.
