Meet Paneer Tikka – the Vegetarian Half Brother of Chicken Tikka. If you chose to be a Vegetarian, were born and raised a Vegetarian, or are forced to be a Vegetarian, you know you have at least one superfood to be thankful for, Paneer – the saving grace. It’s a rainy Fry-day here; calls for HOT Grilled Paneer Tikka Tandoor! <3 Over the years, I have experimented several variations of this recipe, and have tried cooking paneer tikka tandoor in oven, and using air fryer. They’re all great – see for yourself!
We are a family of food lovers and critics; some diet-conscious and Athletic even. Fortunately, our Indian Vegetarian diet offers a few Superfoods and with that, a wide array of recipes – tried and tested that we can bend to our taste and cook a delicious healthy sumptuous meal for our dear foodies. Paneer in that aspect has always been our favorite safety blanket as and when someone decides to go on a Keto, Paleo, or any other low carb diet. That said, Paneer Tikka as a starter/appetizer has been so popular over the last couple of decades that Restaurants & Food joints have been using that as a base for creating Fusion recipes. Paneer Tikka Pizza, Paneer Tikka Sizzler, Paneer Tikka Wraps/Frankie, Paneer Tikka Tacos, Paneer Tikka Kathi Rolls!? Yummm I know but pausing at Paneer Tikka for a second; have you tried ALL the recipes of Paneer Tikka yet? Try them if not- you MAY want to create fusion recipes with some of the better-tasting Paneer Tikkas. 😉

PS: Serve hot with Mint yogurt Chutney!
PS: During the days you are exhausted or are not in a mood to prepare the traditional Tikka Masala paste, I recommend using Rani Tandoori Paste and work the magic of Instant Pot Air Fryer for a healthy meal.
