Uncle Ben'sBen's Beginners


Paneer Skewers

Paneer is a fresh, unsalted cheese and pairs perfectly with spices and aromatics. Skewered with onion and capsicum in this dish makes a fast and delicious mid week meal that goes perfectly with our Vegetable Pilau rice!

  • 100 g Natural Yoghurt
  • 2 tbsp Tikka Curry Paste
  • 200 g Paneer, cut into chunks
  • 1 White Onion, cut into chunks
  • 1 Red Capsicum, cut into chunks
  • 1 Lime, quartered
  • 1 Pouch UNCLE BEN'S® Vegetable Pilau


  1. Add the tikka paste to a bowl with the yoghurt and a squeeze of lime juice, season and mix well. Place the paneer pieces into the bowl and coat well. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to marinade (the longer the better).
  2. Set a grill to high, line a baking tray with foil to collect the juices. If you have a pan with a rack attachment, add on top of the foil. To assemble, slide the paneer onto a metal skewer followed by capsicum, paneer and onion. Continue this pattern until the skewer is filled.
  3. Place the skewers onto your baking tray and slide under the grill. Cook for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally so each side of the paneer cubes can char slightly.
  4. Heat the UNCLE BEN'S® rice according to pack instructions then top with the paneer skewers. Garnish with a lime piece and enjoy!
