Paneer tikka recipe with berries smoothie recipe!!!

Paneer Tikka

Paneer has always been a favourite and I do have a couple of paneer dishes in this blog. I got these skewers long back only with the idea of making paneer tikka and finally used them last week. I got the basic idea of the recipe from Divya’s blog. We enjoyed them a lot, though my hubby said that I should have used only paneer and avoided the other veges , that would have tasted much better!!!

Summary

  • Cuisine: north indian
  • Course: snack
  • Cooking Technique: Grilling
  • Preparation Time: 20 mins
  • Cooking Time: 20 mins

Ingredients

200 gms Paneer/cottage cheese- cut in large cubes
1 Capsicum- cut in triangles or squares(I used red colured capsicum)
1 Tomatoes- firm- cut in triangle or square
3/4 cup Thick curd
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Red chilly powder
1 tsp Garam masala/tandoori masala

1 tsp Chaat masala

  2. Bake this in a preheated oven at 200c for 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle some chaat powder on them. Serve warm with green chutney preferably.

Berries smoothie

I am always tempted to buy the blueberries when I see them in the supermarket. But then its always so expensive that I used to resist my temptation and leave the place quietly. But this time I saw them selling this for almost half the price and bought them immediately. I was really lucky that day, I even chanced upon some juicy Indian mangoes which were being sold at a very reasonable price. So when I got these blueberries ,I have been looking for some recipes to use them. But then I couldn’t help , but add a few of them in my smoothie along with some strawberries before popping a few into my mouth!! Smoothie was really delicious.

I am sending this one to Priti of Indian khana who is hosting Festive food- summer treats.

Ingredients

3 Strawberries
8 to 10 Blueberries- around
1 tbsp Sugar
1 cup Yogurt

Steps

  1. Chop the strawberries and then blend them in a blender along with the blueberries and sugar to a smooth paste. Them add the curd and blend again. Add little water if its too thick.
  2. Serve chilled.
