Punjabi food embodies spices at their best! The Paneer Amritsari Tikka proves this fact once again. Succulent strips of paneer are marinated in a tongue-tickling mix of carom seeds and other spicy ingredients. Once the spongy paneer soaks in all the vibrant flavours, it is ready to be deep-fried and served fresh with a seasoning of peppy chaat masala. Your taste buds will revel in the burst of flavours that every single piece of paneer is sure to create on your palate.
