Literally, makhmali means smooth and velvety. So true to its name, this paneer-based tikka has a smooth, melt-in-your-mouth feel, due to being soaked in rich ingredients like curd, cheese and cashew paste. Despite the dominance of creamy ingredients, the Makhmali Paneer Tikka also has its share of excitement, thanks to the garam masala and chilli paste used in the marinade. Grill to perfection in an oven, and lose yourself in the experience.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Avani, Insert the paneer pieces in a skewer or a toothpick and grill on a tava with oil, it will taste better than a microwave Do try it and let us know... Happy Cooking !!
