Love this Paneer dish. Paneer, capsicum, onions and tomatoes dunked in a rich curd based, mint flavoured marinade makes a delicious starter. Healthy and easy to make. I often put the whole tikka in a roti and have it as a meal by iteself.

i love paneer tikkas and always hunt for new tikka recipes, thanks to that i find a new and tasty recipe everytime. the marinade scores all the points, especially mint in it flavours paneer so well.
