Tandoori Paneer Kebabs

Last week we shared our recipe for Charred Pepper and Artichoke Spedini and we are sticking with our vegetarian barbecue theme for today's Meat Free Monday with these delicious Tandoori Paneer Kebabs. It's definitely worth making plenty of these as everyone will want one and any leftovers make a lovely sandwich filling or salad.

Tips

Paneer is traditional Indian cheese, made from curds acidified with lemon juice. Before it is cooked it has a rubbery tasteless quality, it's saving grace is that it is wonderful cookedI it is solid enough to hold together, it doesn't melt and it absorbs the cooking flavours beautifully. 

Paneer is readily available from Asian stores and most supermarkets.
