Baked Paneer Tikka

This dish is a little bland by itself. But it is good with sweet and sour sauce. The other day, I had some of my Husband's colleagues come for lunch. As they were Americans, I wanted to make a non-spicy dish that would be more or less like cheese cubes. Here is the recipe for baked paneer.

paneer-250 gms
curd-1 tbsp
chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
garam masala- 1/4 tsp
chaat masala
salt- as required

Mix curd, chilli powder,garam masala, and salt. check the seasonings. Mix this with paneer and coat well. Refrigerate for atleast 4 hours.

Line the baking dish with foil paper. Spray some non-stick spray on foil. Arrange the paneer pieces on it. Alternatively, use wooden skewers and thread the paneer pieces on it. Broil for 10 mins in the oven.

Note: I broiled it for 15 mins , so paneer became a little dry. Do not broil it for long if you need the paneer to be moist.
