Back with Chocolate Paneer Tikka!

It feels so good to be back. I missed this dear space of mine, the lovely comments, my fellow bloggers and their recipes.

All this while, I didn't stop cooking, I was still trying out new stuff, my experiments in the kitchen was on. Today's recipe is a result of one of such experiments.

A few days ago, while working out in the gym , an idea struck me (I know, wrong timing but thats me...) I had a very clear picture of this dish in my mind. Immediately after the gym, I picked up all the ingredients required, from the local store and rushed home. I made the chocolate paneer, obviously I had no choice but to wait until the paneer was set. The rest of the recipe is fairly easy and fast. Once the paneer was set, I arranged everything exactly how I pictured it.

My hubby is a big paneer enthusiast. He was amazed by the idea loved this sweet tikka. Blueberry compote not only completes this dish but also enhances the taste of the tikka. 


For the chocolate Paneer

1/2 litre - milk 3.5% fat
1/2 tbsp - dark cocoa powder
3 1/2 tbsp - castor sugar
1/2 tbsp - calcium lactate

For the Blueberry Compote
1 3/4 cup - bluberries
1/2 cup - grape juice 
1 cinnamon quill
a generous pinch of clove powder

2 tbsp - muscovado sugar
4 tbsp - water

Rest of the ingredients
1 - kiwi, peeled and cut into cubes
6-7 small pieces of pineapple from the can


  1. Add the cocoa powder and sugar to the milk and follow my recipe of "how to make paneer" Once the paneer is set. Keep the paneer block  in the fridge for half an hour and then cut into cubes.
  2. Place all the ingredients for the compote in a pan and cook on a medium heat, stirring occasionaly until the berries are soft. 
  3. Thread the paneer pieces onto the skewers along with the pineapple and kiwi pieces. 
  4. Spoon 1 tbsp of berry compote in shot glasses and serve the tikka. 

Serves- 6-7
