I love paneer tikka’s smoky flavour when it is charred with butter inside tandoor. My new oven have grill mode with 250 deg C maximum temperature. I used it for my Chilli cheese toast and amazed to see how it browned the cheese under 2 mins. Thought that time itself it will be good for tandoori stuffs. Now, coming to Hariyali paneer tikka. I have not tasted before or even thought of trying as its not familiar to me until 2 years back.

When I had loads of fresh mint leaves and  kept ready to use in my fridge, even after making pudina thogayal. Only then I started of thinking I should use it up and make a post for blog. Hariyali paneer tikka came to my mind and I had two 500 gm packs of fresh paneer too to finish off. So made it happily. Aj just loved it as he is also big fan of tikka and green chutney combo.

I am just loving the fresh paneer’s texture in this, soft and succulent with this hariyali coating. Also for the first time I tried using besan in the marinade. It coats well and gives good volume too.

Notes

Paneer should be handled carefully while mixing as well as piercing as chances are there to break if you slice/ cut paneer thinly. So I suggest to cut into cubes for perfect evenly cooked. If you don’t have grill option or 250 deg C, just bake at normal mode in the highest available temperature. You can also do it on Tawa, over fire. Show the skewers in direct flame for smoky flavour.
