Simple paneer tikkas made with home made paneer  in three different flavours and colours for the Independence day menu.

How to make paneer:

Small size satay sticks -- 3
Oil .. 2 tbsps (to shallow fry)



For orange colour tikka :
Paneer ...... 3 pieces
Chilli garlic sauce .... 1 tbsp (see recipe HERE )
The sauce has garlic and salt .. so no need to add anything else.
Red capsicum pieces







For white colour tikka:
Paneer ... 3 pieces
Cream or hung curd ... 2 tbsps
Salt .... to taste
White pepper powder .. 1/4 tsp
Onion pieces





 


For green colour tikka:
Paneer .... 3 pieces
Mint chutney .. 1-2 tbsps ( see recipe - HERE )
Green capsicum pieces







Method:



1. Marinate the paneer pieces with the mentioned ingredients separately. Put them in the satay sticks along with the onion / capsicum pieces.









3. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed skillet and shallow fry turning them once on all the sides.
 Serve hot.
