How to make Paneer Shashlik Recipe
To begin making the Paneer Shashlik Recipe, we will first marinade the paneer.
Mix together the ingredients listed under “For Marinade” in a large glass mixing bowl mix all the marinade ingredients together thoroughly. Add the paneer, capsicum. onions,tomatoes and coriander to the marinade.
Ensure that the vegetables and paneer are well coated with the marinade. Then cover the bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Pre-heat the oven at 250 degrees C for 10 mins. And soak bamboo skewers in a bowl of water.
Take one bamboo skewer at a time and pierce in the marinated vegetables and paneer alternatively.
Place the skewers onto the wire grill tray and slide it on to the top rack position in the oven. Place a drip/crumb tray at the bottom to collect any juices that may fall off the skewers.
Set the oven to broil/roast/grill mode and allow the skewers to grill at 250 degrees C for 6-7 minutes, before basting with oil and lemon juice. Ensure that you turn the skewers every 2 minutes, carefully, using mittens, till they are evenly cooked on all sides.
Once evenly cooked, remove the tray from the oven and gently take the skewers out andserve.
