Soft, juicy chunks of paneer marinated in Tandoori masala and then grilled with veggies! This is a great dish to serve at your next barbeque.


  • 30, 2" cubes of paneer (cottage cheese) - see recipe below
  • 3 tbsps Tandoori Masala (see recipe below)
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 large onions cut into 1" square pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper, deseeded and cut into 2" cubes
  • 1 green bell pepper, deseeded and cut into 2" cubes
  • 5-6 tbsps vegetable/ canola/ sunflower cooking oil
  • 2 tbsps Chaat Masala - available at most Indian grocery stores
  • Lemon wedges to garnish


  • Mix 2 1/2 tbsps of Tandoori Masala with the yogurt, 2 tbsps cooking oil and salt to taste and make a smooth paste.
  • Put the paneer chunks in a bowl and pour the above Tandoori paste on to it. Mix gently to coat all the paneer well. Cover and keep in the refrigerator to marinate for two hours.
  • Mix the remaining 1/2 tbsp of Tandoori Masala with the onion pieces to coat them well.
  • Thread the marinated paneer, onion and green and red bell pepper pieces onto bamboo skewers in a combination of your choice.
  • Preheat your grill on medium. Put the paneer skewers on it and brush with a little cooking oil. Grill till paneer is light golden and the onions soft. Do not overcook or the paneer will become rubbery.
  • Remove onto a plate and sprinkle with Chaat Masala. Squeeze some lemon juice over the paneer skewers, garnish with lemon wedges and serve piping hot!
