Recently I became active on Instagram and I get to see lot of exciting posts. One thing which caught my attention was the idea of trying out new things which require baking. Initially I thought I will bake a Pizza with my own twist and I started looking for Pizza baking stone, and found this one from Hans Grill, I must add its absolutely a piece of beauty. In any case, I ordered this baking stone and when it arrived, I was happy chirpy bird (Who does not like new gadgets in kitchen?)! When I decided to bake my pizza, my girl said she wants to eat something different, so I thought let me give a twist to something she loves. She loves Paneer Patties , so this time I decided to make “Paneer Tikka Parcels” (पनीर टिक्का पार्सल), and this was something new for her as well, and I was assured that she will love it.
Using this pizza stone was incredibly useful idea this time. I baked the paneer parcels on it and served as well 🙂
The procedure to make these paneer tikka parcels is simple, and consists of getting the paneer tikka ready and then placing the baking pizza stone in the cold oven, and letting the stone heat with oven (do not put cold stone in hot oven, it can break the stone), and then using puffed sheets, cutting in small squares, filling the paneer tikka and wrapping it. Lastly, using the handy spatula provided by pizza stone to slide in the paneer tikka parcels (or some may call Paneer Tikka Pockets) into the oven over stone.
When these paneer parcels are almost done, switch off the oven and take out the Paneer tikka parcels and serve 🙂
The crispy surface of these parcel / patties/ pastry with soft cooked paneer oozing million flavours of spices is something which is difficult to resist.
This is almost hassle free cooking and gives a super scrumptious item which you can use as snacks or as starter in your party. Trust me this will win heart of your guests 🙂
In my recipe I have used paneer tikka as filling, however your choices are as many as your taste buds can go. If you are a non-vegetarian, try filling chicken or eggs in case you like eggs.
I have shared the following two recipes in past, you may find them equally interesting:
When you use a baking stone you need to be following few things. I found this article and you too may find it handy. Please note that you do not need to use a baking stone for this recipe and I have used it as I liked the idea of using baking stone which also served as my tray when I served these paneer parcels on the stone.
Now let me explain the step by step detailed recipe of these tasty paneer parcels.
