To make these tikkas, you need paneer or cottage cheese, bell peppers and onions. If you don’t like these veggies then you can also add any other vegetable of your choice. Cut the paneer in square and triangle shapes. Then marinate it with a few spices. Keep it in the refrigerator for an hour. Meanwhile, the paneer is marinating, soak the wooden skewers in water for an hour. This would prevent them from burning.

Thread the marinated paneer and veggies onto the skewers and cook in a non-stick pan for 5-6 minutes. Serve these juicy and flavourful tikkas with coriander chutney. Happy Diwali!
