tikka recipes have become a national dish and it is one of the must-have starter recipes for any celebrations or gatherings. well, generally meat based tikka are more popular compared to veggies option. but the paneer based tikka is very well appreciated by both meat and veggie lovers. in addition, tikka and spice go hand in hand and the assumption is all tikka recipes are spicy. but there is another category of tikka where malai or cream is used with tikka spices to lower the spice temperature and also to add the creamy flavour. in this recipe, i have used paneer cubes, but the same malai tikka sauce can be used for any other choice of vegetables or even meat.

the recipe for malai paneer tikka is extremely simple to make, yet some tips and suggestions to it. firstly, the paneer cubes have to be moist and juicy for any tikka recipe. i have used the home-made paneer which was fresh and moist. hence i would recommend to use home-made or perhaps use fresh store bought paneer. secondly, i have used tawa to roast the paneer, but it tastes great when roasted on a barbecue or directly on charcoal. you can also use a traditional oven to oven fry it. lastly, serve these immediately once it is fried with green chutney or tomato sauce. in addition, you can use the leftover paneer malai tikka cubes and add it to onion and tomato based gravy to make paneer malai tikka masala recipe.
