Paneer tikka


Color bell peppers - 1 of each color
Bamboo Skewers - few sticks
Onion 1
Cilantro - to garnish

For marinating:

Yogurt - 1 tbsp
Tandoori masala - 1 tsp
orange color - a pinch
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt for taste

How to:

Mix all the ingredients mentioned for marinating. Cut paneer into cubes or triangles, bell peppers into squares and onions (a little wide ) and dip them in yougurt mix. yougurt is just a binding factor. Do not add more yougurt. Refregirate them overnight.

In a baking tray place all the veggies and paneer and broil in the oven for 7 mins ( unlike bake mode, broil does not have temperature control). Take the tray out, reverse the paneer and veggies and broil for another 7 mins. Do not keep paneer for more than 16 mins put together. It will burn. Once they are broiled, arrange them in skewer , add finely chopped cilantro to garnish.

Alternatively dip the skewer in cold water (else skewer will burn), spit paneer and veggies in the skewer and broil. Timing will be the same.

A good way to start your party!
