How to make the recipe?
  1. Firstly slice paneer into long pieces with a width of ¾th inch thick atleast.
  2. Rinse the greens and place side.
  3. Combine coriander leaves, mint leaves, onion, lime juice, chilies, roasted cumin powder, fennel seed, ginger and garlic. Also add sugar now if using.
  4. Grind all with little water if required until smooth chutney is formed.
  5. Now add gram flour, black salt, a tsp of oil and chat masala. Give a nice whisk as the mixture need to be smooth and lump free.
  6. Coat paneer with this mixture. Repeat the same with the rest of paneer.
  7. Marinate the paneer for 20 mins.
  8. Also marinate capsicum, bell pepper and onion with this mixture for 20 mins.
  9. Take a skewer and gently slide a onion first then a capsicum then a marinated cottage cheese until the skewer is left with no space.
  10. Heat your grill pan or pan, drizzle some oil over it.
  11. Once the oil is hot place 2 skewers and shallow fry them.
  12. Once fried from one end, fry from reverse side until golden brown in color.
  13. Fry and repeat the rest with other skewers. Alternatively if you don't wish to use skewer then just fry the paneer first then the veggies.
  14. Serve your hariyali paneer hot with green chutney and some lime wedges.
  15. Baking or Grilling in Oven:
  16. Place the marinated paneer with skewer or without skewers on a greased pan.
  17. Preheat the oven at 220ºC for 15 mins.
  18. Drizzle some oil over the paneer. Grill or bake at 200ºC for 7-8 mins. Again check drizzle some drops of oil and bake for 4-5 mins more.
1. The marination mixture has to be thick and not thin else the paneer won't be coated nicely. So add gram flour as required.
2. If you like them hot add more green chilies for making it spicy.
3. Instead of yogurt you could use cashew paste if you are allergic to dairy products.
