What you need: Makes 6 skewers
2 lb Paneer / Indian cheese slab
For the marinade:
1 tsp ginger garlic paste

4 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp sour cream
Salt to taste
Bamboo skewers

Cut the paneer slab into 1 inch cubes, place them in a large ziploc bag; set aside. In a blender, make a fine paste of the marinating ingredients. Pour the marinade into the paneer bag, and seal it. massage the marinade into the paneer cubes and store it in the fridge overnight or for a couple of hours.

Soak the bamboo skewers in water for about 30 minutes. Poke the marinated paneer cubes into skewers, alternating it with colored peppers, onions and tomatoes. Brush some light cooking oil or spray some cooking oil on them.

Place on a greased tray if you are going to use the oven. Broil them in the oven for about 12-15 minutes at 400 degree F. Turn them half way, so both sides are lightly browned .

An open grill tastes the best, place the skewers on a preheated grill for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently, until cooked through and lightly browned. Squeeze some fresh lime juice just before they are served

Prepare a platter with ketchup, ranch sauce or just plain yogurt. Enjoy!
