Paneer and Tofu Tikka Burger~Bloghop Wednesday #4

For the Blog Hop this time I am paired with Prathima of Prats’ Corner.   

Now came the biggest challenge what to make. For each recipe that I read I wanted to make! Finally I choose this Paneer Tikka Sandwich recipe for it falls in is an entry for my current event (Please send me your entries for I have hardly any) and most importantly I was sure my kids would love it.


I served these as burgers as both Tofu and Paneer with Pudina/mint chutney along with Virgin Mojito (I think that’s what it is called at KFC)!

The reaction to the food was,” Our private MacDonald’s “!!

Highest compliment you can receive from a fast food crazy teen!! 

Prats’ are you reading this! I own this to you!! Thanks dear!

For the pudina/mint chutney please visit here. The only change is I have added 1 medium onion as the mixer blades did not reach the mixture.
To make the burgers you will need:
500 grms paneer
250 grms hung curd
2 tsp ginger – garlic
1 tsp turmeric
2 ½ tsp Meat Masala (Yes have used this masala successfully in Chole also)
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander powder
½ tsp garam masala
1 tblspn kasuri methi/fenugreek
½ cup onion (optional but recommended)
Orange food colour (optional I used but very sparingly so I had hardly any colour)
2 tsp oil
6 burger buns
Mint chutney
Capsicum slices
Lettuce (I used iceberg)

1.     Grind all the ingredients to a fine paste except the curd to a fine paste using the water from the curds sparingly.

2.     Add to the curds all the ingredients except the paneer. Season if needed.
3.     Mix the paneer pieces and marinate for at least ½ an hour.

4.     Layer a non-stick tawa with oil and fry the paneer on all sides till well done.

5.     Cut the burger buns in the centre and fry with a little butter on the same non-stick tawa.
6.     Just before serving spread the mint chutney on the burger buns both the sides. Layer with the lettuce, capsicum, a dash of chutney again and then 3-4 of the tikkas. Cover with the other bun.

7.     Stick a tooth pick in the centre (since my tooth picks are plastic I used these wooden skewers ha ha ha!)  Microwave for 2 minutes.
8.     Serve hot! (Tastes great cold also)!

 I have said paneer everywhere but as my FIL does not eat paneer I kept aside ½ cup  marinade and   added tofu pieces to it. Rest is the same. No one can make out the difference between tofu and paneer!!
