Paneer Tikka

Grilled Paneer tastes amazing and making meat-free Paneer kebabs with vegetables is easy even if you don’t have a tandoori oven at home. This is an easy and comforting vegetarian dish that fills your home with pleasant aromas and has a wonderful chargrilled flavour.


Cut the paneer into large cubes approx. 4 x 4 cm. Cut the red peppers and onions into similar sized pieces as the cheese. Add the lot to a bowl and set to one side.

Put yoghurt, garlic, ginger, lime juice, fenugreek seeds, chilli and garam masala in a mini food chopper, add salt and blend until you have a fine, uniform mass. Pour over the cheese and vegetables and stir in well. Let the mixture sit for a minimum of 1 hour and preferably overnight in the fridge.

Remove the bowl from the fridge and place the vegetables and cheese on the skewers, ensuring that the vegetables are at the ends. You can now choose either to cook the skewers on the barbecue or in the oven

Oven: preheat the oven to 220 degrees and find an ovenproof dish of suitable size so that the skewers can rest on the edge at each end of the dish. Line the dish with aluminium foil and place the skewers on top. Place in the oven and turn the skewers every 3 minutes until they are cooked on both sides and have a nice crispy finish.
