Tri Colour Paneer Tikka For Republic Day
Republic day special Tirnaga Paneer Tikka recipe that you must try this year if you are craving something yummy and healthy at the same time. Also, if you are a vegan, swap paneer with tofu and try it the same way
First, cut the paneer into cubes (equal sizes) and put them in a bowl for the marination process. Now, take a bowl, and add these ingredients -- salt, lemon juice, olive oil or avocado oil, and ginger and garlic paste. Mix all of these ingredients together to make a smooth paste. Now, add the paneer cubes into the paste and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes for marination.
Second step --- Prepare the saffron-colored marinade. For the tri-coloured paneer tikka, we will be making these different types of paneer tikkas today-- Hyderabad paneer tikka (saffron red), Afghani paneer tikka (white), and Hariyali paneer tikka (green). For the second one, which is the Hyderabadi mix, take a mixing bowl and combine together hung curd or yogurt, red chilli powder, garam masala, and yellow chilli powder. Take a pan, and dry roast sauteed mustard seeds, dry red chilies, and coriander leaves. Now add the required amount of mustard oil and mix all the ingredients together. Now add this marination to the paneer cubes and keep it aside.
For Afghani mix (white), take another mixing bowl and add some hung curd, cashew nut paste, fresh cream or malai, a pinch of cardamom powder, some white pepper powder, and fennel seeds powder. Now, mix all the ingredients well. Add paneer cubes to this and keep them aside.
For the Hariyali mix (green), take a mixing bowl and add green chilli paste, mint leaves, kasoori methi, and coriander leaves (all grounded well into a paste). Now, combine this paste with some hung curd, mustard oil, lemon juice, and chat masala powder, and add the paneer cubes to it. Keep this aside.
Let the paneer cubes marinate for at least 30-40 minutes.
Now, take a pan or a tawa and add the paneer pieces stuffed in the skewers.
Lastly, serve the paneer tikkas and arrange them in accordance with the colour scheme of the tricolour, that is, saffron red on the top followed by white and then the green coloured paneer pieces.
Serve it hot with some coriander and mint chutney.
