Recipe : Paneer Hariyali Tikka - Cottage Cheese Kebabs

This is a great way to finish leftover green chutney before whipping up a fresh batch.

Its also very quick to fix for a snack.

Since this is a recipe for leftovers, there are no quantities mentioned, you need to trust your instincts and eyeball it.


Paneer - Cut into desired shape
Green chutney
a little curd/ yoghurt to make up the balance volume for marinating the paneer (optional)
vegetables like peppers/capsicum/ tomatoes/ onions - cut into triangular shapes
Chaat powder to garnish & taste
Black salt - to taste

Mix the green chutney with the yoghurt.
(If you are using yoghurt, don't marinate the paneer for too long, it will turn too soft to handle.)
Add black salt to taste
Marinate the paneer in this mixture for 15 minutes to 1 hour (while you are chopping the vegetables)
You can now either grill it, BBQ it or pan fry it.
Skewer the paneer alternating with colorful peppers for a fancy look.

This time, I made it as a quick snack, so I just pan fried it without oil.

If you are using fresh paneer, a lot of water will get released.

Don't worry, it will all dry up and give the paneer the crisp finish.

After pan frying the paneer, I dipped the vegetables in the remaining marinade before frying them too (again without oil)

Sprinkle chaat powder and serve hot.

It can also be served with rotis for a meal.
