Paneer Tikka has always been one dish that I never fail to order when we eat out. Infact if I remember right I have tried to experience how differently Paneer Tikka tastes in as many different places. Best have been in the ones I have enjoyed in Tandoor, which were really huge pieces yet so succulent, juicy and soft! In other places, it used to be real spicy and yet soft still.

So I always used to related to soft Paneer Tikkas whenever I eat this. Yet there have been occasions when it was served quite hard. I was delighted that my daughter shared my passion for Paneer Tikkas. And trust me, spicy in Tikkas are not spicy for her. She can easily eat couple of those real spicy ones, still claim them not being so spicy.

I already have a recipe for Paneer Tikka, that I had done on stove top without a Tandoor Oven the recipe is completely different from this recipe, which was shared by the MW Chef. And the fact that I prepared this Paneer Tikka in both "Only Micro Mode" and in Combo Mode of Convection + Micro Mode.

The difference between these two modes was that the Tikkas made in the Combo Mode came out soft and crisp on the top, while the Tikkas in the only Micro Mode, came out a bit harder. Of course if you ask me, I won't mind either ways.

This serves as a delicious starter and a great dish for Kids.

The below picture is made in Microwave Mode:

Mix the Paneer cubes along with Onion, Capsicum, Tomato pieces with the marinade and keep it aside for 15 mins.
 Then Micro the marinade for 2 mins for the masala to get cooked.

 Then using toothpicks, cube the paneer cubes along with tomato, onion and capsicum and micro for 1 - 2 mins in micro mode.

This is done in combo mode, where the same marinade is used and using toothpicks, club the paneer and rest. Pre- heat the oven for 210 degree and then in Combo mode using Convection + Microwave mode, cook the Tikkas for 15 mins.

Paneer - 250 gms
Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp

Made a marinade of hung curds, ginger garlic paste, corn flour, garam masala, red chili powder, salt, cumin powder along with oil. Add kesar powder if you are using. Mix the paneer, onion, tomato and capsicum into this marinade. Keep it aside for 15 - 20 mins.

In Microwave Mode:

In a microwave safe bowl, cook the marinade for 2 mins.

Then using tooth picks, insert the onions, capsicum, tomato with the paneer in between.

Micro for 1 -2 mins.

Baked Paneer Tikka | Paneer Tikka in Convection Microwave Mode:
