Soft, juicy chunks of paneer marinated in tandoori masala and then grilled with veggies! This is a great dish to serve at your next barbecue.
- 3 tablespoons tandoori masala (homemade or store-bought, divided)
- 1/4 cup yogurt
- 5 to 6 tablespoons vegetable oil (or canola or sunflower cooking oil, divided)
- Kosher salt (to taste)
- 1/2 pound paneer (homemade or store-bought, cut into 30 (2-inch) cubes)
- 1 large onion (cut into 1-inch square pieces)
- 1 red bell pepper (deseeded and cut into 2-inch cubes)
- 1 green bell pepper (deseeded and cut into 2-inch cubes)
- 2 tablespoons chaat masala (available at Indian grocery stores)
- Lemon juice (to taste)
- Garnish: lemon wedges
Gather the ingredients.
Mix 2 1/2 tablespoons of tandoori masala with the yogurt, 2 tablespoons cooking oil, and salt to taste, and make a smooth paste.
Put the paneer chunks in a bowl and pour the tandoori paste over it. Mix gently to coat the paneer. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for two hours.
Mix the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of tandoori masala with the onions to coat them well.
Thread the marinated paneer, onion, and green and red bell pepper pieces onto bamboo skewers.
Preheat your grill on medium.
Place the paneer skewers on the hot grill and brush with a little cooking oil.
Grill until the paneer is light golden and the onions are 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 hot.
