Paneer tikka recipe with berries smoothie recipe!!!

Paneer Tikka

paneer tikka Paneer has always been a favourite and I do have a couple of paneer dishes in this blog. I got these skewers long back only with the idea of making paneer tikka and finally used them last week. I got the basic idea of the recipe from Divya's blog. We enjoyed them a lot, though my hubby said that I should have used only paneer and avoided the other veges , that would have tasted much better!!!

paneer tikkaIngredients-

Paneer/cottage cheese- 200gms cut in large cubes
Capsicum- 1 cut in triangles or squares(I used red colured capsicum)
Tomatoes- 1 firm- cut in triangle or square
Thick curd- 3/4 cup
Turmeric powder- 1tsp
Red chilly powder- 1tsp
Garam masala/tandoori masala- 1tsp
Salt- 1tsp
Chaat masala- 1tsp


Add turmeric powder, chilly powder,salt and garam masala in a bowl containing thick curd. Add the chopped paneer , tomatoes and capsicum into the bowl. Mix well. Leave this the refrigerator for around 2-3 hours. Then thread this pieces of paneer and the other veges in a skewer.
Bake this in a preheated oven at 200c for 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle some chaat powder on them. Serve warm with green chutney preferably.

Berries smoothie

I am always tempted to buy the blueberries when I see them in the supermarket. But then its always so expensive that I used to resist my temptation and leave the place quietly. But this time I saw them selling this for almost half the price and bought them immediately. I was really lucky that day, I even chanced upon some juicy Indian mangoes which were being sold at a very reasonable price. So when I got these blueberries ,I have been looking for some recipes to use them. But then I couldn't help , but add a few of them in my smoothie along with some strawberries before popping a few into my mouth!! Smoothie was really delicious.
I am sending this one to Priti of Indian khana who is hosting Festive food- summer treats.
