Prep: 1h

Total: 1h50min


  • For the Paneer
  • 1 gallon whole milk
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • Cheesecloth
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • For the Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon asafoetida
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds small new potatoes, scrubbed
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1-inch squares
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1-inch squares
  • 2 medium yellow onions, cut into 1-inch cubes and separated into 3-layer segments
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets roughly 1-inch in size
  • Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes prior to use


  1. To make the paneer: Place milk in a stockpot or dutch oven and bring to bare boil over medium heat. Add in lemon juice and stir gently until milk begins to curdle. Remove pot from heat and let stand for 10 minutes. Strain curds through cheesecloth set in a colander then wash curds under cold running water for 1 minute. Gather ends of cheesecloth and twist tightly closed, squeezing out excess whey. Place cheesecloth back in colander and set colander on a plate. Place another plate on top of cheesecloth and weigh down with heavy pot, canned goods, or other weight. Transfer to refrigerator and let sit 30-60 minutes. Remove from refrigerator, remove weights, unwrap cheesecloth, and season with salt to taste. Use immediately, or for best results with skewers, wrap paneer in plastic wrap and let sit in refrigerator for 1 to 2 more days prior to use.
  2. To make the seasoning: Combine salt, cumin, coriander, turmeric, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and asafoetida in a small bowl. Heat oil in a small saucepan until just simmering. Add in spice mixture and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Place potatoes in a medium pot and cover completely with water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a bare simmer and cook until potatoes can be pierced with a paring knife with little resistance, about 12 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water. Halve potatoes and place in a large bowl.
  4. Slice paneer into 1-inch cubes and transfer to bowl with potatoes along with peppers, onion, and cauliflower. Pour in seasoning mixture and toss to thoroughly coat contents of bowl.
  5. Alternately thread peppers, paneer, onion, potatoes and cauliflower onto skewers.
  6. Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and arrange the coals on one side of the charcoal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate. Place skewers on cool side of grill, cover, and cook until cauliflower is crisp-tender and edges of onions and peppers begin to caramelize, 12-15 minutes. Move skewers to hot side of grill and cook until they develop light charring, about 1 minute per side. Transfer skewers to a large platter and serve immediately. Repeat with remaining skewers.
