Whisk yogurt until smooth and add all the spices. Then add Ginger-Garlic Paste and mix until combined.
Then add paneer, onion, and bell peppers and combine properly until these are coated evenly. Lastly, add Mustard Oil and Lemon Juice and mix. Let it marinate for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator.
Once marinated, thread paneer and veggies in the skewers alternatively. (Note: Soak Bamboo Skewers in water for at least 30 minutes).
Ninja Foodie/Mealthy CrispLid/Air-Fryer Cooking: Place the skewers in the air-fryer basket and spray butter or oil. Then insert the basket in the air-fryer. Air-Fry for 7-10 minutes at 400°F until cooked and charred.Oven Cooking: Preheat oven at 450°F for at least 10-15 minutes. Place the skewers in the oven and spray oil or butter. Bake for 10 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes until charred.
Once grilled, sprinkle some lemon juice nad chaat masala and serve. Garnish with some sliced onions and cilantro.
Always use the Paneer that is refrigerated and not frozen. Also, Paneer should not be of room temperature, otherwise, its pieces will break.
Cut Paneer in bit pieces, almost like 1-2 inches. That way Paneer will not break when grilling or baking. If you cut Paneer really small then most of the pieces will fall from the skewers.
Marinate Paneer for at least 1-2 hours in the refrigerator. that will result in soft & juicy Paneer Tikkas.
Before adding Paneer in skewers (if using bamboo ones) soak them in water. that way the skewers will not get burned.
When grilling, spray butter on one side and bake them. Keep rotating the skewers when baking for even charred flavor & color.
