Paneer Sizzlers

    Paneer sizzler is a vegetable barbeque recipe with paneer cubes marinated in tantalizing array of sauces and spices and then placed in a griller. The paneer sizzlers are easy to prepare and mouthwatering in taste. A perfect starter or cocktail snack item. I have used the store bought chutney's in this recipe, you can find them in any Indian grocery stores.


Paneer into 1" cubes - 14 oz
Red onions into 1" chunks - 1 no
Capsicum into 1" chunks - 2 nos
Cherry tomatoes - 15 / Roma tomatoes into 1" chunks - 2 nos
Mint chutney - 4 tbsps
Chilli chutney - 2 tbsps
Tamarind date chutney - 4 tbsps
Ginger paste - 1 tsp
Garlic paste - 1 tsp
Lemon juice - 1 no
Salt as per taste
Coriander powder - 2 tsp
Pepper powder - 2 tsp


1) Take a wide vessel and combine all the chutneys, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice, salt and powders and mix nicely.
2) To this add the paneer, red onions, tomatoes and capsicum and mix nicely.
3) Allow this to marinate for about an hour.
4) In a skewer insert a chunk of onion,tomato,capsicum and paneer and repeat till the skewer is filled.
5) Brush them with oil.
6) Grill them in your griller or arrange the skewers in a baking tray and bake at 350 F for 15 minutes and then broil for 10 minutes.


1) Soak the skewers in water before inserting the vegetable chunks for 20 minutes so that they will not burn.
2) Turn the skewers occasionally while grilling or baking.
3) Serve hot, garnished with lemon and onion rings.
