Tarla Dalal    Hi Hezal, Make sure the paneer you use is fresh and soft. As it is cooked on a tava , paneer cannot get hard. Make sure you serve it immediately.

This is the most perfect masala for the tikkas. Family loved it. I baked the tikkas in oven at 230 degree for 15-20 minutes, turning them in between. Also, drizzled oil each time I turned them, to maintain softness of paneer.
