While I love the snuggles, hot chocolates and cheese overdoses that winter brings along with it, to me summer is the best season. Growing up, summers meant end of school and exams, waking up late, playing with friends with no worry of being ‘late’ and Mangoes. More recently though, summers mean longer days, strolls in the park post work and BBQ’s in the garden. BBQ’s are such a pleasure, the smell of the charcoal, the taste of charred, yet not burnt, food, and long hours of chatting with friends and loved ones. When it comes to BBQ recipes, I have some tried and tested dishes that are absolute winners. These Coriander Paneer Skewers are on the few.
I know you’re probably thinking BBQ’ed food means meat. But these delicately marinated paneer chunks are a delight to even the meat eaters. Vegetarians behold, a simple to put together dish.
Coriander Paneer Skewers?
The marinade for these skewers is basically a coriander chutney mixed with liberal amounts of yogurt. Hung yogurt is best because it means the marinade actually sticks to the paneer cubes. But plan yogurt also works well.
A combination of mint and coriander means only one thing – bursts of citrussy, lemony notes. When you further add ginger, garlic and yogurt to this, it just enhances everything 100 times more.
