Paneer Tikka Roll

A delicious twist on a widely-loved dish! If you love paneer tikka, you'll enjoy it even more in this wrap filled with spicy pickled onions, cilantro-mint chutney, and vinegar-soaked green chillies.

This is definitely one of my favorite recipes that I've created. Its quick and easy but definitely a heavy-hitter. Those of you with a high spice tolerance are going to love this.

Paneer Tikka

  1. ~230 g paneer

  2. 5-6 tbsp yogurt

  3. 3/4 tsp cumin

  4. 1/2 tsp coriander powder

  5. 1/4 tsp haldi, Chaat masala, and garam masala

  6. 1/2 tsp fenugreek leaves

  7. 1/4 tsp amchur

  8. 1 tsp Kashmiri mirch

  9. 1/4 tsp salt


  1. 3 tbsp cilantro (finely chopped and tightly packed)

  2. 1 tbsp mint (finely chopped and tightly packed)

  3. 4 tbsp yogurt

  4. 1/8 tsp cumin powder, chaat masala, amchur, ginger powder, garlic powder, and salt

  5. 2 green chillies

  6. 1 tbsp Lemon juice (optional)

Pickled Onions:

  1. 2-3 tsp oil

  2. 1/4 large red onion

  3. 1 lime

  4. 3/4 tsp chaat masala

  5. 3/4 tsp kashmiri red chili powder

Paneer Tikka:

  1. In a bowl mix together your yogurt and all of your spices

  2. Cut your paneer into pieces (I cut mine into thin rectangles for a traditional paneer tikka shape but you can cube your paneer instead)

  3. Coat your panner evenly on both sides with the yogurt mixture and then pop it into the air fryer at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. If you don't have an airfryer, simply use an oven or pan fry your paneer instead


  1. Combine all of your ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth

Pickled Onions:

  1. Sauté your onions in oil until they soften and then add the juice of one lime

  2. Cook for another 30 seconds or so and then add in your spices

  3. Continue to cook until all of the lime juice has absorbed into the onions

Additional Notes:

  1. I also highly recommend adding green chillies soaked in white vinegar into this roll. I soak mine for at least 20 minutes.

  2. For the wrap itself you can use a roti, parantha, or tortilla. Fry it in some butter and hot sauce for some extra flavor. I use a 1:1 ratio of earth balance butter and tapatio hot sauce and coat each side of my tortilla evenly.
