Nothing can beat biting into a satay of succulent paneer pieces interspersed with crunchy veggies like onion and capsicum! But, it is possible to prepare these easily at home? In this innovative recipe, we have done away with the traditional technique of grilling, and prepared each Vegetable Satay on a tava without any special tools. In order to make this a low-cal version, we have used low-fat curds for the marinade, and opted for low-fat paneer too, making it possible to get a good dose of calcium and protein apart from the vitamin A that capsicum gives us.
