Lacy Paneer Tikka

BM # 50  Week 4  Day 2

For day 2 under Paneer recipes, I have a paneer tikka which is laced with besan cheela. I was not very happy with the pics but I liked the combo of the lacy cheela and tikka. May be I can redo the pics after a while.

The cheela is made from chick pea flour, the batter should not be runny else it will start spreading, and at the same time it should not be too thick, as after cookng the cheela will turn out quite hard.the consistency of the batter should be that of dosa batter.

I am sure one can make better laces but since this was my first trial I kept it very simple.

The tikka recipe is also very simple...
For the cheela lace
1/2 cup chick pea flour
Pinch red chilly powder (optional)Salt to taste
Pinch asafoetida
Make a Dosa consistency batter and fill a squeeze bottle.
Using a non stick gridle squeeze out the batter in a lace pattern .
Drizzle oil.
Flip over and drizzle oil again.
Let cook for a minute , remove.

Paneer Tikka

Place the lace on the serving plate.
Arrange the tikka pieces on the cheela lace.
Serve with ketchup.
