Servings 4 people
- 1 cup or 200 gm. paneer or cottage cheese cut into large cubes
- 1 onion cut into cubes
- 1 bell pepper cut into cubes
- 1 cup Greek yogurt or hung yogurt
- 2 tsp. ginger garlic paste
- 1 tsp. cayenne or Kashmiri red chilli powder
- ½ tsp. pepper powder
- 1 tsp. kasuri methi or dried fenugreek
- 1 tsp. tandoori masala or garam masala
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. oil
Mix all the ingredients of the marinade together in a bowl to make a thick paste.
Now add paneer, bell pepper and onion cubes to the marinade and mix well till they are well coated. Keep it marinated for about an hour. 2 hours is the best.
Preheat your Airfryer to 400 F or 200 C for 8 minutes.
Skewer your paneer cubes along with bell pepper and onion cubes, alternating them. Now spray or brush with oil. Place them in the Airfryer, ensuring that they are not overcrowded.
Now Airfry at 400 F or 200 C for about 8 minutes. Turn once in the middle.
You can airfry for a 2 minutes more for a nice char. The paneer tikka is done when everything has a nice golden brown colour.
Do not overcook the paneer or it will turn stringy. It must be soft and moist on the inside.
You can also cook this in the oven or on the stove stop as mentioned above.
Adjust the marinade for spice. This makes for a spicy paneer tikka recipe.
Airfrying time can vary depending upon the type of your oven and the size of your paneer cubes. So keep an eye on the Airfryer or oven if you are baking.
