Paneer Tikka

Paneer Tikka ,I've found this recipe in one of the food blogs ,don't remember the name correctly .It should be something like food lyrics but not sure.I liked the way she prepared ,she did not use the oven.Marinated the vegetables and then pan fried them and cooked on gas flame.Here is the recipe.

Ingredients:
Paneer - 200gms
Capsicum - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 Large
Onion - 1 medium
Oil - 3tsp
Green chutney - 2tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp(add according to taste)
Salt - To taste
Curd - 1/2 cup
Coriander powder -1/4 tsp(optional)
Garam Masala - 1/4 tsp(optional)
Lime juice - 1/2 tsp
Method:
1. Cut the capsicum, tomato, onion and paneer in to 1 inch cubes.
2.In a large bowl mix all the marinade ingredients together thoroughly.
3. Add capsicum,onion & paneer,mix gently.Leave them aside for couple of hours.Add tomatoes just before frying.
4.In a non stick pan transfer everything except for the tomatoes and fry until the marinade is totally absorbed by the veggies and the paneer.
5.Skewer the vegetables with paneer alternately on the skewers.
6.Hold it on a high gas flame and roast them .As I had electric stove I've arranged the skewers on top the chapati grill and cooked them.
7.Roast it till the edges are nicely done.
8.Serve hot with green chutney.

Serve them hot with green chutney if you like it to be more spicy.

Tips:
Do not fry tomatoes as they will be cooked and will become tender.
You may also grill this dish on a barbecue tray, by placing the skewers on the top rack position in the oven at 200 degrees centigrade on broil mode. Turn the skewers occasionally.
