About the Recipe

Welcome to our kitchen, where we're always experimenting with new flavors and fresh ingredients! We're excited to present a classic Indian dish with a nutritious twist: Paneer Tikka with Microgreens. Paneer, also known as Indian cottage cheese, is marinated in a flavorful blend of spices and yogurt, then grilled to perfection. What sets this dish apart is the addition of assorted microgreens, adding a burst of freshness and nutrition to every bite.


  • 250g paneer (Indian cottage cheese) -

    cut into cubes

  • 1 cup plain yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste

Step 5

Add the cooked paneer cubes back to the pan with the onions and bell peppers. Mix well and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
