Marinated Paneer Tandori Tikka/ Cottage Cheese Barbeque

Paneer Tikka is one of the most common and simple tandoori snack which is loved by everyone….It is simple and really healthy because there is no oil in this recipe, but only vegetables and curd.Do make them this summer for your barbeques and picnics.

10 cubes of Paneer
1 onion cut in cubes
1 Capsicum (use different colours) chopped in cubes
1 Tomato chopped in cubes
1/2 cup Curd  (plain thick yogurt)
2 tsp Tandoori powder (optional)
1 tsp cumin (jeera) powder
2 tsp 
homemade chaat masala
Salt to taste
Red chili Powder to taste

1 tsp coriander(dhaniya)powder
Skewers- 3

Dip wooden skewers in water for 2-3 hours  (this avoid them burning)
Mix curd with all the dry powders and salt and keep aside.
Mix chopped vegetables and paneer in the above curd mixture.
Marinade the paneer and vegetables for minimum half an hour.
Heat oil in a kadhai and fry marinated paneer till fully done.
In the skewers arrange paneer, onion, capsicum and tomato one by one.
Grill it for 10-12 minutes or til done.

Serve Tandoori Paneer Tikka hot with chutneys or dips.

Tip:-Just bake till the panner starts browning in the edges. If you over bake then paneer will turn rubbery.
-If you don't have oven then try the tawa method, take non stick pan and roast all the vegetables one by one and then arrange in the skewers.
