Most of us enjoy paneer as kids,but Im the odd one here, I'm not a paneer fan, though I don't mind cooking it for my kids. But I do eat paneer in small takes.As a kid,I never used to like milk and milk products.Once I got my own kids I realized the importance,benefits and started to consume in small proportions.My amma used to always tell me you
Me wont know the importance now,once you get your own kids you'll me come to know.Now isn't that a common saying told by most of the concerned mothers?But I do agree with her....K coming back to the tikka,the most favorite thing I enjoy eating is the grilled,crunchy and charred onions.I just love to eat when it gets burnt.So whenever we order paneer tikka or any tikka at the restaurant ,the ghaas phoos (veggies) are given to me.This was yesterday nights starter and my dinner was complete after my bhabhi Santoshi parceled me tandoori prawns which she had prepared.She prepares the best tandoori prawns being a eggetarian... You may prepare this tikka with sea food like prawns,boneless fish, veggies like babycorn,potato,cauliflower or even mixed veggies which makes an excellent veg tandoori platter.
