Paneer or Chicken Tikka Masala in Oven

So here is a quick quick marinate recipe for paneer tikka or chicken drumsticks.

    • Mustard Powder 
    • Coriander powder
    • Cumin powder

  • For the marinate- 
    • Mix the plain yogurt or buttermilk, dry spices, herbs, garlic, lemon juice, oil, salt & pepper and leave to marinate preferably overnight in the refrigerator. 
    • You can prepare the marinate in a bowl & then transfer it to a large zip log bag. This way you can throw away the bag next day after removing the pieces & the marinate adheres well to the chicken or paneer pieces. 
  • Remove the pieces from the marinate & transfer to a foil tray. Easier to clean this way. 
  • Pre-Heat oven to 200 degrees C and let the pieces roast for at least 20-30 Mins.
  • You will have absolutely delicious, tender & crisp tikkas. Serve with some steamed herb rice for a complete meal.
