  • 2 large tbsp tikka paste
  • 250g natural Greek yoghurt
  • Handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1tbsp chopped mint leaves

  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 1tbps olive oil


Soak some wooden skewers in warm water for an hour or so (or you can use metal skewers).

Mix the tikka paste with the yogurt and the herbs in a large bowl. Cut the paneer into cubes and mix into the yogurt marinade. 

Cover and leave in the fridge overnight or for at least a few hours.

Heat the BBQ until it is good and hot.

With a vegetable peeler slice the courgette into long strips and toss with the cherry tomatoes in the oil. Thread the paneer (keeping any leftover marinade in a bowl for serving), courgette and cherry tomatoes onto the skewers. Repeat.

Cook on the BBQ for approx 2 mins each side spooning over a little extra yogurt sauce if you want or serve with flat breads and a dollop of any leftover marinade.
