Paneer Tikka and a Mini Barbeque

So the husband got this tiny metal box home calling it a mini barbecue. I acted the sceptical wife.

But man! We got the perfect Paneer Tikkas and all of us loved them!
Paneer Tikka
The recipe is simplicity itself-

Paneer, cubed- 500 grams
Capsicum, cubed the same size as the paneer- 3 to 4
Tomatoes, cubed the same side as the paneer- 3 to 4 (I removed the soft fleshy part from the tomatoes to avoid the liquid dripping on the coals)

Marinate the paneer for 2- 3 hours.
Skewer it with oil rubbed capsicum and tomatoes.
Barbeque and enjoy!
My first time with the barbecue and had a blast!
