Steps :
1. Here are all the ingredients. Cut the paneer / cottage cheese, bell pepper/ capsicum and onion in big pieces.
2. Take curd / yogurt in a mixing bowl, add black pepper powder and red chili powder. Mix well with the curd / yogurt.

6. All the ingredients are coated well with the mixture, cover and marinade for 30 minutes.
7. After 30 minutes, take a skewer (here I am using wooden skewer), put the coated paneer and vegetables in the skewer one by one as per your choice. Here I put capsicum / bell pepper first, then paneer / cottage cheese and onion. Repeat the same sequence for the whole skewer.
8. Once done, put the skewer in the leftover curd / yogurt mixture and coat well from all the sides.
9. Heat a frying pan / wok, add little bit of oil and fry from all the sides till the curd / yogurt coating cooked well. Keep the flame on medium.
10. Once fried, keep out the skewers in a plate.
