Achari Paneer Tikka Recipe

achari-paneer-tikka

North Indian food, and more specifically Punjabi cuisine is the storehouse of a variety of tikkas and tandooris. One of the vegetarian favorite is the paneer tikka – cubed pieces of cottage cheese, marinated, skewered and grilled to perfection.

It takes just one bite to fall in love with paneer tikka. But when it’s Achari Paneer Tikka, a whiff of those spices is enough. An Achari Paneer Tikka is a yummier and tad more spiced cousin of the classic paneer tikka. With an inventory of spices used to marinate it, the tikka is for spice-loving buds. Use this recipe to skewer some.
