Easy Paneer Tikka Recipe for Kids

By Hemapriya Natesan @MyLittleMoppet

Paneer tikka is one of the most popular dishes that families order when eating out and is an absolute favorite of my husband and son too! It is made from chunks of paneer and vegetables marinated in curd and spices and roasted in a tandoor. Since I didn't have a tandoor at home, I used a tawa to make my very own easy paneer tikka recipe for kids!

You can use a non stick pan or ceramic pan as well as a well seasoned tawa or griddle. I have reduced the spice quotient to make it more kid-friendly.

That's it, your paneer tikka is ready, without the use of an oven or tandoor! You can serve this dish with tomato sauce or mint chutney. You can avoid the tandoori masala if you're making this exclusively for kids, but do add it for the rest of the family; it gives a distinct flavor. You can also add a squeeze of lime and sprinkle chopped coriander leaves over it. So don't let the absence of a tandoor hold you back, go ahead and make some yummy paneer tikka!
