Paneer on Skewers

This is one dish that helps give the taste of Tandoor  - AT HOME!

Ingredients:

  1. Paneer - 300 gm, or 1 and a half packets
  2. Yogurt - 2 tbspns
  3. Salt
  4. Chilli powder - 2 tspn
  5. Dry Mango Powder - 1 tspn
  6. Garlic Cloves - 3-4, made into a fine paste
  7. Veg Oil - 2 tbspn
  8. Cumin Powder - 1 tspn
  9. Corn Starch - 1 tbspn
Procedure:
Preheat your oven to 200 C, for about 10-15 min

Marination:
  1.  Make a marinade out of the yogurt, cumin powder, chilli powder, dry mango powder, garlic, salt and oil. 
  2. Cut the Paneer into squares and dust them with some of the corn flour, to prevent them from disintegrating. 
  3. now dip them the marinade and coat them consistently with the marinade. Leave them to marinate in it for about 30 min.
  4. after it marinates, dust them with the remaining corn flour.
  5. Now take your skewers and carefully insert your marinated paneer into them. For medium sized skewers, about 4 pieces can be on one. For larger ones, I insert about 6 in one. 
  6. Take a roasting tray, and place your skewed paneer on it. 
  7. Place in the oven and roast for about 20-30 min, till the edges start going from brown to dark brown. 
Serve Hot , with green chutney! Goes down very well with hot Roast Tomato Soup!
