Paneer Tikka (Grilled Cottage Cheese)

Paneer Tikka or Grilled Cottage Cheese, is a very popular vegetarian starter.
There are many ways to make Paneer Tikka but this is my way of making tikka in the fastest possible way.
I have used a gas barbeque to grill the paneer.
But you can you use any kind of barbeque or grill.
The ingredients however remain the same.
You could grill capsicum, tomatoes or even pineapple chunks along with the paneer.
I made grilled only red onions with paneer since my daughter likes them. We mostly make it as a late evening snack, rather than a meal starter.

Paneer or Cottage cheese - 100 gms
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Amchur or Dry mango powder - 1/2 tsp
Chat masala - 1/2 tsp
Black salt - 1/2 tsp
lemon juice - 1 tsp
Mint leaves - to garnish
Onions, Capsicum, Pineapple, Tomato pieces - to grill along with the cottage cheese

Cut the paneer into big cubes.
Take a bowl, mix all the powders along with lemon juice in it, and apply evenly to all sides of the paneer.
Let it marinate in the fridge for atleast 30 mins.
Now put the paneer and the vegetables alternately on a skewer, as shown.

Now grill for 10 mins maximum.
Serve garnished with mint leaves.
