250 grams of fresh breadcrumbs

A handful of cashews — turned into a paste
A teaspoon of mustard seeds
Ingredients needed for marinating
Salt to taste
Olive oil or avocado oil
Red chili powder
Yellow chili powder
1 cardamom stick (powdered)
One teaspoon of fennel seed powder
A few fresh mint leaves
2-4 fresh green chili peppers
Fresh lemon juice
Hung cottage cheese or yogurt
Garam masala powder
3-4 dry red chili
1 tablespoon fresh cream or fresh malai
White pepper powder
Kasoori methi leaves (dried)
A pinch of chaat masala powder
First cut the paneer into cubes (equal size) and put them in a bowl to marinate. Now take a bowl and add these ingredients: salt, lemon juice, olive oil or avocado oil and ginger and garlic paste. Mix all these ingredients into a smooth paste. Now add the paneer cubes to the pasta and keep it aside for 10-15 minutes to marinate.
Second Step — Prepare the saffron marinade. For the tri-colored paneer tikka today we are going to make these different types of paneer tikkas: Hyderabad paneer tikka (saffron red), Afghani paneer tikka (white) and Hariyali paneer tikka (green). For the second, the Hyderabadi mix, take a mixing bowl and combine the hanging curd or yoghurt, red chilli powder, garam masala and yellow chilli powder. Take a pan and dry roast fried mustard seeds, dry red chillies and coriander leaves. Now add the required amount of mustard oil and mix all the ingredients together. Now add this marination to the paneer cubes and keep aside.
For afghan mix (white), take another mixing bowl and add some curd, cashew nut paste, fresh cream or malai, a pinch of cardamom powder, some white pepper powder and fennel seed powder. Now mix all the ingredients well. Add paneer cubes and keep aside.
For the Hariyali mix (green), take a mixing bowl and add green chilli paste, mint leaves, kasoori methi and coriander leaves (all well ground into a paste). Now combine this paste with some hanging cottage cheese, mustard oil, lemon juice and chat masala powder and add the paneer cubes to it. Keep this aside.
Let the paneer cubes marinate for at least 30-40 minutes.
Now take a pan or a tawa and add the pieces of paneer that have been put in the skewers.
Finally, serve the paneer tikkas and arrange them according to the tricolor color scheme, i.e. saffron red on top, followed by white and then the green colored paneer pieces.
