Grilled Paneer Cheese in Tandoori Seasoning


Grilled Paneer Cheese in Tandoori Seasoning
Indian paneer cheese works well on your indoor or outdoor grill, as it chars lightly instead of melting away like other cheeses. In this Indian tandoori-inspired recipe, paneer cheese is coated in a yogurt sauce, smothered in tandoori spices, and grilled on skewers just until lightly charred. Serve it up with extra sauce. Yum!


  • 1/2 cup plain or lemon yogurt
  • 2 tbsp tandoori seasoning blend
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste (optional, if you like your food a bit spicy!)
  • 8 ounces paneer cheese, chopped into 1-inch cubes


Whisk together the yogurt, tandoori spice blend and cayenne pepper. Add diced paneer cheese, coating well with sauce. Allow to marinate for at least one hour.

Pre-heat an indoor or outdoor grill to medium low heat. Skewer paneer on soaked bamboo skewers, and grill for 5-7 minutes, or until lightly charred, coating well with extra sauce.

Serve your grilled paneer drizzled with extra sauce, or serve the extra sauce on the side for dipping.
