Potato and paneer kebabs
Paneer is a mild-tasting cheese that's great for absorbing flavours. Here it's marinated in lemon juice and gunpowder spice before being grilled on skewers to make for a simple starter or light lunch
- Serves: 2 persons
- 100ml greek yogurt
- 1lemon, juiced
- 2tsp Cooks' Ingredients Gunpowder Spice Blend
- 225g paneer, cubed
- 12baby potatoes
- 1tbsp vegetable oil
- 1carrot, grated
- ½tsp cumin seeds, toasted
- 1green chilli, finely chopped
- pinch of sugar
- small bunch fresh mint, chopped
- 1cucumber, peeled and sliced, to serve
Step 1Mix the yogurt in a medium bowl with 1 tbsp of lemon juice, the spice blend and a pinch of salt. Add the paneer and gently stir until it is completely coated.
Step 2Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water for 10-12 mins or until barely tender. Drain well. Thread the paneer onto long metal skewers alternating with potatoes, then put them on a baking tray lined with foil. Brush the potatoes with a little oil. Grill the skewers for 10 mins, turning halfway, until the paneer is hot and the potatoes slightly charred.
Step 3Meanwhile, mix the carrot with the remaining lemon juice, cumin, chilli, sugar and mint. Serve the kebabs with sliced cucumber and the carrot salad.
