Kebab vegetables with Paneer | Indian Appetizers

Tandoored food items are always in my favorite list. Any dish which is cooked directly under fire has a unique smoked flavor which is unique and makes it even more tasty. Though grilling or barbecueing goes hand in hand with meat or fish, vegetables and paneer also make a very good grilled food. So here, I present grilled vegetables with paneer. Feel free to use any vegetables of your choice and the options are endless..


Ingredients:
Barbecue sticks - 8
Paneer - 200 g - cubed
Red bell pepper - 1 - cut into 1" pieces
Onions - Cut into 1" pieces
For the kebab paste:
Curd/Yogurt - 1/4 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Tandoori masala - 1 1/2 tbsp (available in Indian grocery stores)
or a mix of the following
Chilli powder - 3/4 tsp
Chaat masala - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Method:
Mix the ingredients for the marinade to a paste. Smear the paste to the cubed veggies, mix well and allow it to marinate for a minimum of 1 hr to 4 hrs. Soak the barbecue sticks in water for 30 mins. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Line a baking pan with aluminium foil with a overhang on two opposite sides. Pin the marinated veggies in the skewer alternating with paneer. Do not overcrowd the skewer. When done place the skewers on the rims (with foil overhang) of the baking sheet. Grill in the oven for 30 mins, turning once in between. Done-ness can be checked with the light charring of the vegetables. Serve hot sprinkled with lemon juice.
