Notes:
  • To make hung curd - place the curd in a muslin cloth tie and hang it over the sink for 2 to 3 hrs to remove the excess water.
  • Place the skewers dipped in water for one hour before using it. This is to prevent the skewers from burning.
  • You can even add diced onion to this recipe.
  • For the stove top method- after the marination, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a non stick tawa, keep the flame to medium, place the arranged skewers and fry it evenly by turning them and cook until paneer and capsicum are lightly browned.
