An Indian - inspired vegetarian dish that definitely doesn’t compromise on flavour. These skewers are filled with paneer, red pepper and courgette; all flavoured with tikka masala. Perfect served with our Pilau rice, raita and a squeeze of lime.

Tildalicious tip: yoghurt is a great way of stretching the curry paste and tenderising the vegetables so they cook quicker.
