Grilled Cottage Cheese Paneer Tikka


350 g paneer
3/4 tbsp yellow chilli powder, (or red chilli powder)
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp gram flour
1 heaped tsp carom seeds, (ajwain)
2 tbsp Yoghurt or curd
1/2 tsp garam masala


1. Soak 4-6 bamboo skewers in cold water for 20 minutes.

2. Cut the paneer into 4cm cubes. Sprinkle with the chilli powder and the salt. Toss everything together and ensure the paneer is evenly coated. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.

3. Combine the gramflour with the carom seeds and Yoghurt or curd. Coat each paneer cube in the spiced cream and chill for 30 minutes.

4. Preheat the grill to its hottest setting. Thread the paneer onto the skewers and sear under the grill for 3-5 minutes on each side - until deliciously smoky and charred at the edges. Serve straight away, sprinkled with garam masala.
