Tawa paneer tikka recipe - Tawa fried paneer tikka

Tawa paneer tikka recipe - This tikka  is a delicious snack which can be served as a starter or as a side dish. Instead of oven, this tikka is prepared by shallow frying on tawa, hence it is called as tawa tikka. This is one of my favorite paneer dishes that I would like to prepare often. This snack is crispy from outside and soft from inside. The roasted onion and capsicum adds an exotic flavor and taste to the tikka.
