Paneer Tikka

1/2 kg paneer cubes, about 3 cm/1 1/2" each
2 tsp garlic paste
2 tsp ginger paste
1 tsp chaat masala or 3 tbsp
2 tsp chilli powder tandoori masala
1 tsp powdered black pepper
1 tbsp salt
A few drops of red colour
3 tbsp vinegar OR 1 cup (200 g) yoghurt
Oil for brushing
1 lemon quartered
1 onion sliced into rings for garnish

Mix all the ingredients, except the garnishes, and leave for 20-30 minutes.

About 20 minutes before serving, place the paneer on a drip pan and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes.

Remove from oven, brush with oil and bake again for 10 minutes.
Alternatively, you can grill on a griller or a barbecue pit. 

(The drippings should definitely have a means of escape, or else the paneer will get soggy.)

Serve hot, garnished with lemon and onion rings.
