Crisp outside, succulent inside, and masaledar to the core, the Paneer Achari Tikka is a tongue-tickling starter that is sure to gear up your digestive system!

Here, the paneer cubes are marinated in a chatpata mix of curds, spices and pickle masala and then cooked on a tava. We have used only the masala from the mango pickle avoiding the mango pieces.

Also, the tikkas are to be cooked just before serving to enjoy the best texture – otherwise they will get chewy. You will love the really achari taste of this paneer tikka – go for it!
