Afghani paneer tikka is from the kitchens of Mughals. Learn how to make restaurant style Afghani paneer. The Mughal maharajas had an umpteen number of chefs who spent laborious hours toiling in the kitchens to prepare the perfect meal. They ground most ingredients to powders to ensure the perfect eating experience. The spice powder of this paneer Afghani, is a classic example of this.
To make Afghani paneer, combine the melon seeds, cashews and poppy seeds in a mixer jar and blend till you get a smooth powder. Then make a marinade by combining fresh cream, milk, butter, white pepper powder, garam masala, chilli paste and salt. Combine the paneer cubes with this powder and marinade, toss gently and keep aside to marinate for 2 hours. Thread 6 pieces of the marinated paneer in each satay stick or a skewer. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), grease it with little oil, place 4 marinated paneer satays on it and cook using a little oil on a medium flame for approx. 10 minutes or till they turn brown in colour from all the sides.
In this restaurant style Afghani paneer, the paneer should be extremely fresh, else it will break. Make big cubes and not small so that the pieces do not break while inserting them on a satay stick. Marinating the paneer for at least 1 to 2 hours ensures that all the flavours of the marinade are absorbed.
Remember to serve this Afghani paneer tikka immediately off the tava.
