The Marinade

Let’s start with making the green goddess marinade.

  • Wash the spinach and coriander leaves well. Add them to a food processor. I like to roughly chop the leaves, so it’s easier to blend them.
  • Add the ginger, garlic, green chili, yogurt, and lemon into the blender. Blend everything well and pour into a bowl.
  • To the bowl, add the coriander powder and salt and mix everything well to combine.

  • Chop the paneer into cubes.

Cooking Options

We have two options for making these delicious green goddess paneer skewers:

  • Preheat the barbecue to 400 degrees F and place the skewers on the barbecue and allow the paneer to cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side. Make sure to test lifting gently. If the cubes are not properly cooked, they will break and fall apart.
  • Alternatively, if you don’t have a barbecue, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, place a cookie tray on top of a baking tray and place them on top of that. Bake for about 10 minutes and then flip over and bake again.

Serving Suggestions

  • I love serving this with a side of naan, some minty yogurt sauce, and more fresh coriander leaves. Make a wrap and enjoy it that way. Or just serve the naan on the side.
  • I always make extra marinade and use that as a dip. It certainly tastes delicious as an addition on top of the cooked cubes.

Variations:

There are some variations we can make to this Indian recipe:

  • Try adding fresh mint leaves to the marinade mix. It brings a lot of freshness to the recipe.
  • Use this marinade mix with chicken cubes instead and all the non-vegetarians in the house will be happy too.
  • If you don’t have Greek yogurt, try using sour cream in its place. It works equally well.

Storing Suggestions

Store any left over skewers in an air tight container in the fridge. Allow them to cool down completely before placing them in the fridge. When ready to eat, remove them from the fridge and allow them to come to room temperature. Then heat them in a microwave for about a minute. Do not over heat or the cubes will become chewy.
