  • 250g paneer (Indian cottage cheese), cut into cubes
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Malai Tikka Masala from MMasala Box Co
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cream (malai)
  • 1 tablespoon besan (gram flour)
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 onion, diced into chunks
  • 1 bell pepper (capsicum), diced into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • Skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine yogurt, Malai Tikka Masala, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice, fresh cream, besan, and salt. Mix well to form a smooth marinade.
  2. Add paneer cubes to the marinade, ensuring they are evenly coated. Marinate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). If using a grill, preheat it to medium-high heat.
  4. Thread marinated paneer cubes, onion chunks, and bell pepper alternately onto skewers.
  5. Brush a baking tray or grill with oil to prevent sticking. Place the skewers on the tray or grill.
  6. Bake or grill the paneer skewers for about 10-12 minutes, turning them occasionally, until they turn golden brown and slightly charred on the edges.
  7. Once cooked, remove from heat and serve hot with a sprinkle of fresh coriander leaves and a side of mint-coriander chutney.
