Grilled Paneer Skewers

This is always a hit at our house. A great appetizer and a main course dish with a side of rice.

For the marinade
2 teaspoons - ginger garlic paste
1 teaspoon - corriander powder
to taste - red chilli powder
1/2 cup - yogurt
1/8 teaspoon - turmeric powder
to taste - salt
For the skewers
Paneer cut into cubes. Cut vegetables you want to grill into cubes similar in shape to the paneer.
Suggested veggies - Onions, bell pepper (red, yellow, orange, green). You can also use potatoes. However I would suggest that you cook the potato till it is 3/4th done and then cut into the cubes.

Mix all the marinade ingredients. To this add the vegetables and the paneer to the marinade. Let it marinate for a couple of hours. The more time the better it will taste.
Soak the skewers in water for an hour. Arrange the vegetables and paneer on the skewer and proceed to grill. It takes about 5-7 minutes on each side. Keep moving the skewer to get an even golden color. Take care to not burn the paneer.
Spray some oil on the grill before arranging the skewers on the grill to avoid sticking and breaking of the paneer. Serve as an appetizer or serve with a side of rice pilaf and raita.
