Preparation steps

  2. In a large bowl, mix the tikka paste with half the yogurt, cumin, ginger and spices.
  3. Cook the potatoes in a pot of boiling salted water for 7 minutes, then drain well and add to the tikka mixture with the paneer.
  4. Mix carefully into the marinade and then refrigerate for at least 2 hours so that it gains flavor.
  5. To assemble the kebabs, alternate the marinated potatoes and paneer onto the skewers with the onions and peppers, then cover on a tray until ready to grill.
  6. Heat the grill or a grill.
  7. Mix the mango chutney with the remaining yoghurt and the mint leaves with the lettuce leaves.
  8. Broil or broil the kebabs, turning, until the vegetables are charred and tender, 10-15 minutes.
  9. A few minutes before the end, place the chapattis in batches on the grill so that they warm up.
  10. Serve the kebabs with the mint salad, cooling mango yogurt and chapattis and let everyone create their own wraps.

Health Benefits of Tikka Skewers

Tikka skewers, popular in Indian cuisine, are not only delicious but also offer several health benefits. Let’s take a look at the key ingredients for making tikka skewers and the benefits they offer:

1. Tikka paste

Tikka paste is made from a blend of aromatic spices such as turmeric, coriander, cumin and paprika. These spices are known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. They can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases and promote overall well-being.

2. Yogurt

Using yogurt in tikka skewers adds a creamy and tangy touch to the dish. Yogurt is a good source of protein and calcium, essential for muscle growth and maintaining strong bones. It also contains beneficial bacteria called probiotics, which promote a healthy gut and aid digestion.

3. Cumin seeds

When cumin seeds are included in tikka skewers, they not only add flavor but also provide potential health benefits. Cumin is known to improve digestion, reduce inflammation, and strengthen the immune system. It can also be helpful in controlling blood sugar levels.

4. Fresh root ginger

Ginger, a popular spice in Indian cuisine, has numerous health benefits. It has anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Ginger can also help relieve muscle pain, ease menstrual cramps, and lower blood sugar levels.

5. New potatoes

New potatoes used in tikka skewers are rich in fiber, vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants. The fiber content supports digestion and helps maintain a healthy weight. Potatoes also provide important nutrients for heart health and can help improve blood pressure.

6. Paneer cheese

Paneer, a type of Indian cottage cheese, is a good source of protein and calcium. It is low in sodium and contains no cholesterol. Paneer also provides several essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12, which is necessary for red blood cell formation and neurological function.

7. Red onions

Red onions used in tikka skewers are rich in antioxidants, especially quercetin. Antioxidants protect the body from free radical damage and can reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Red onions also contain fiber and have anti-inflammatory properties.

8. Red peppers

Red peppers are rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin A and potassium. They are also rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. Consuming red peppers can support healthy skin, boost the immune system, and promote eye health.

9. Mango chutney

Mango chutney, a sweet and tangy condiment, offers a dose of vitamin C, iron and fiber. It can enhance the taste of tikka skewers while providing potential health benefits. Vitamin C supports immune function, iron is essential for the production of red blood cells and fiber supports digestion.

10. Mint leaves

Mint leaves not only provide a refreshing taste but also provide various health benefits. Mint is traditionally used to ease digestion and relieve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. It can also help with bad breath and promote healthy skin.

11. Lettuce leaves

Using different lettuce leaves in tikka skewers ensures freshness and important nutrients. Salad leaves such as lettuce and spinach are low in calories but rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They contribute to a balanced diet and help maintain a healthy weight.

12. Chapatis

Chapatis, a type of Indian flatbread, are typically made from whole wheat flour. Whole wheat flour is a healthier alternative to refined flour because it contains bran and germ, which provide fiber, vitamins and minerals. Including chapatis in tikka skewers provides additional fiber and promotes better digestion.

By incorporating these ingredients into tikka skewers, you can enjoy a flavorful meal while reaping the numerous health benefits they offer. Treat yourself to this delicious and nutritious dish today!
