You will need 8 metal or wooden skewers for this recipe (see tips).

If using wooden skewers, you will need to soak them before threading the ingredients in step 3. Place skewers in a tall jug, then fill with boiling water; stand for 5 minutes. Rotate skewers, if not completely immersed in water, and soak for a further 5 minutes; drain.

Paneer is a creamy firm cheese sold in blocks, like fetta, in supermarkets.
