Achari Paneer Tikka...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: , ,

I am a big fan of tikkas and kebabs and trying them with different flavours is a very interesting task.So i made this "Achari Paneer Tikka" recently by using achar masala(Pickle spice powder) and some regular ingredients.Pickle is a must with food in many regions of India  , so why not use it to make some other tasty dishes.This is a very quick,easy and tasty starter.I added whatever spices i found to make it more spicy but it will get its main taste from the achar/pickle spice powder.You can use any achar/pickle powder for it.I have used a homemade pickle spice powder, but if you do not have homemade achar/pickle powder you can even use readymade pickle spice powder as its very easily available in stores.



  • 250 grams paneer (cottage cheese)
  • 2 capsicum
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 table spoon of homemade/readymade achar masala(Pickle spice powder)
  • 1 tea spoon chilli powder(optional)
  • 1/2 tea spoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tea spoon amchur powder(dry mango powder)
  • 1 tea spoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 tea spoon chat masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • salt
  • oil


Put the yogurt in a muslin cloth and tie a knot.Hung it for 1 hour so that all the water drips down from it.Cut the paneer intoone  inch cubes.Similarly cut capsicum and tomatoes in one inch square pieces.

Take the hung yogurt in a bowl.Add chilli powder, turmeric powder,cumin powder,amchur powder, chat masala and achar/pickle spice powder,sugar and salt  to it.Mix it well so that the spices get distributed evenly.Add the amount of spices according to your taste.Add 2 tea spoon oil also and mix.Marinade is ready.

Now take the paneer cubes and chopped tomato and capsicum pieces in a big bowl.Add the marinade  mixture to it ans mix it well..Apply the marinade gently to the paneer cubes or else they tend to break.

Take some satay/skewer sticks.Take one stick and thread alternate layers of marinated capsicum, paneer cube and tomato.Repeat it with the other sticks.

Heat a tawa/griddle with little oil or a stone griller or tandoor and grill it for 2-3 mins on each side till done.

Serve hot.

Preparation Time: 20 mins
