Paneer Tikki

Sometimes when I am hungry and craving food badly, I come up with the awesome recipes like this schezwan paneer and paneer tikki. I usually look for ingredients in my refrigerator/pantry and come up with recipes that are easy and quick to make. Usually it turns out good and I immediately download the recipe from my mind and jot  it down somewhere so that I can refer for later uses. I have made this paneer tikki twice and loved it and here’s how I make it. It’s really easy if you have some paneer ready. I like the taste of homamade paneer so I usually make paneer a day before and refrigerate  it. You can use store-bought ones too. paneer_tikki Read More …

Schezwan Paneer

As much as I like cooking, sometimes laziness gets to me and pushes me into I-don’t-feel-like-cooking-today zone.
