Remove the seeds of tomato. Cut all vegetables into cubes. Rub salt and pepper on them, keep aside.

Put all vegetables cubes in the marinade. Thread the marinated paneer and vegetables onto seekhs / skewers in a combination of your choice. Grill on gas tandoor or any type of tandoor/barbeque or even in a pan.
