Paneer Tikka Biryani:
Spicy biryani made with paneer tikka. Paneer tikka can be prepared at home with ease, just that this has to be planned in advance as it requires some time to get marinated and grilled. Otherwise the recipe is quick and gets the attraction of everyone around with its flavour and taste.
Usually biryanis would taste better when basmati rice / jeera samba rice is used. I made this with jeera samba rice, which has its own flavour to enhance the taste of this recipe.
After marination, paneer can be grilled using an oven or roasted using a dosa or roti tawa on your gas stove. Both will be good. It will be better to marinate for 2 hours to get a perfect taste, but when time is a concern, you can shorten it to 1 hour as well.
Make this at your home and give a surprise to your family members.
