Baked Paneer Tikka

While Sanjeev Kapoor recommends adding saunf, none of us in my family really enjoy it in our meals, rather it is treated strictly as an after-meal mouth freshner.

Cottage cheese (paneer): 500 gms
Oil: 2 teaspoons
Gram flour (besan): 2 tbps
Turmeric: ½ teaspoon
Ginger paste: 2 tsp
Garlic paste: 1 tsp
Black pepper powder: 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Lemon juice : 2 tbs
Fresh cream: 1 cup
Melted butter for basting
Chaat masala: 1½ tsp

1. Cut paneer into one and a half inch squares of half-inch thickness.
2. Heat oil in a pan. Add besan and cook until it emits a fragrant aroma, remove from heat and add turmeric powder. Cool flour and transfer into a bowl.
3. Add ginger-garlic paste, pepper powder, salt, lemon juice, and fresh cream. Whisk well to make a batter.
4. Add paneer cubes to the batter and marinate for at least an hour.
5. Thread paneer cubes onto skewers.
Preheat the oven to 220°C and cook for three minutes on either side, basting once with butter in between.
8. Remove and sprinkle with chaat masala powder and lemon juice. Serve with a chutney of your choice.
