How to make Paneer Skewers | Pan Grilled Paneer

  • Cut the paneer into 2 inch square pieces. Sprinkle salt, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste. Keep aside for half an hour.
  • In a nonstick pan, heat cooking oil and roast the besan. Cook on very low heat until besan lightly browns.
  • Remove from fire, let cool.
  • Then, add lemon, salt, chilly flakes, black pepper to the besan. Sprinkle some water to make a paste. Make sure the batter is a thick. Marinate paneer in this marinade, and keep aside for 15 minutes.
  • Heat pan and drizzle cooking oil, cook paneer on all sides until it browns. Sprinkle chaat masala, chopped coriander and serve hot.
  • Else, if you want to have that typical grill effect, you can arrange on the skewers, grill over the flame and while you are grilling, drop little cooking oil over it and serve.
