  1. Line a fine-mesh strainer with muslin or cheesecloth and set inside a small bowl. Pour in yogurt; let drain for 15 minutes. Discard liquid.
  2. Mix drained yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice, turmeric, chile powder, cumin, garam masala, and salt together in bowl. Add paneer, onion, and green bell pepper and mix well. Marinade for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Skewer marinated paneer, onion, and bell pepper onto metal skewers. Grill until vegetables are soft and cheese is browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Brush with vegetable oil and grill for 1 minute more.
  5. Mix onion rings with green chutney and serve with skewers.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute butter for the oil if preferred.
  • Tikka should ideally be cooked in a charcoal grill for its distinctive smoky flavor. It can, however, be cooked on an electric grill as well, or even in a nonstick skillet.
