There are many exciting twists in this aromatic tikka. The use of sesame in the marinade imparts a luring flavour and aroma to this tikka, while a coating of dry roasted besan gives it an interesting texture, as if coated by bread crumbs! The Paneer Amritsari Tikka is sure to take you on a culinary journey to Punjab, as it exemplifies the dominance of aromatic ingredients in their cuisine.
