  • heat up a grill pan/tawa in medium-high flame and drizzle over a tsp of oil and a tsp butter.
  • place the marinated paneer and veggies on the tawa.
  • you can fry at a low flame or medium flame.
  • when one side gets browned, gently lift and turn over. the paneer cubes will get cooked faster than the veggies. so remember to remove the paneer cubes as soon as they are golden.
  • for the vegetables, you have to make sure the marinade on them gets cooked. so lightly press them while cooking.  
  • if you want you can fry the paneer cubes first and then the marinated vegetables. pan fry all till they become golden.

  • arrange the paneer tikka on a plate. sprinkle some chaat masala on paneer tikka.
