Furthermore, I would like to give some suggestions for making the perfect paneer tikka recipe. Firstly, try to use greek yogurt or hung curd rather than using normal yogurt. If you use normal yogurt, it will let out a lot of whey water while marinating and frying. Also, marinate the paneer cubes for at least 30 mins. You can also keep the marinated Paneer overnight in the refrigerator. The longer it marinates, the tastier and more flavorful tikka can be made. Also, don’t overcook it. If you fry for more than 8 mins then paneer cubes become rubbery. Finally, If you are making paneer tikka masala gravy, then you can use that extra marinade in the gravy.
