2 teaspoons pickle gravy

250 grams cottage cheese (paneer)

1 teaspoon coriander seeds

¼ teaspoon fenugreek seeds (methi dana)

½ teaspoon onion seeds (kalonji)

¼ cup hung yogurt

1 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste

Salt to taste

¼ teaspoon red chilli powder

¼ teaspoon garam masala powder

¼ teaspoon mustard powder

A pinch of turmeric powder

2 tablespoons oil

1 cup coloured capcisum cubes

A sprig of fresh mint


In a pan, dry roast coriander seeds, fenugreek seeds, onion seeds and keep them aside. Then in a bowl, mix hung yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, salt, red chilli powder, garam masala powder, mustard powder, pickle gravy, turmeric powder together and keep aside. In a mortar with a pestle, we should crush the roasted spices and add the powder to the yoghurt mixture. Then cut the paneer into small cubes and add to the yoghurt mixture. The paneer cubes should be completely covered in the mixture. They should be marinated for about fifteen minutes. In the skewers, we should thread the paneer cubes and capsicum cubes alternately and then grill them in an air fryer, or manually. After they are completely grilled, they should be served hot, garnished with mint sprig.
