Luscious food, mashed and mixed with a aromatic blend of spices and other ingredients, hooked on to a skewer and grilled is not only rewarding to the taste buds but also to the sight and smell! Kebabs have been around for so long and bespeaks of Middle Eastern culture but now which has been adopted by so many of us all around the world. While one may think of meat while talking about Kebabs, I say why deprive the vegetarians of the delicacy ;-) We want to grill and broil some vegetables on a skewer too!
Though I have tried multiple variations of ingredients to replace the meat in a kebab dish, Paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) is among the simplest and basic of them all. Cooking in Tandoor is an Indian classic, but in the absence of the clay oven, a Tandoori Masala does help to bring out the essence of it. Hence Tandoori Paneer Kebabs it is for me :)
I used the store bought variety only but it was not the chicken variety.
