  • 1 bunch Cilantro
  • 1 Green Chile (stemmed and seeded)
  • 2 cloves Garlic (sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 cup Canola Oil (plus more for brushing)
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper
  • 12 oz Paneer Cheese (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 Japanese or Indian Eggplant (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 Small Zucchini (cut into 1-inch cubes)
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper (cut into 1 inch chunks)
  • 1 cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • 4 Naan Bread
  • 1 Lemon (cut into wedges)


  1. Soak 8-10 wooden skewers in water.
  2. Puree the cilantro, chile, garlic, coriander, oil, salt and pepper in a blender until smooth.
  3. Place the paneer in a bowl with chopped vegetables and cover in cilantro oil; stir to combine and then marinate in the fridge for at least one hour.
  4. Heat barbecue on high. Carefully wipe the preheated grill grates with a lightly oiled paper towel. Using a grill brush, scrape the grill grates clean, then carefully wipe with a lightly oiled towel again.
  5. Skewer the cheese, eggplant, zucchini, red bell pepper and cherry tomatoes and grill over direct heat until the vegetables are charred and edges of the paneer turned golden brown, 4-5 minutes on both sides.
  6. Season the kebabs with a sprinkle of salt. Brush naan with oil and grill until charred and crisp, about 1-2 minutes on each side.
  7. Serve kebabs with grilled naan and lemon wedges.
