4. Cover the bowl, and place it in refrigerator for 45-60 minutes.
5. Once it is well marinated, take out the bowl, stir everything once, and arrange the pieces on skewers (One can also use toothpicks in place of skewers).
6. Take 2-3 Tbsp of oil in a non stick pan, place the skewers, and cook the sticks from all sides until the pieces turn golden brown.

FOR THE SALAD:- Mix all the salad ingredients in a bowl and salad is ready.

Tips:- 1.You can use any dressing of your choice in the salad, keeping in mind that it goes well along with the main dish. 2.Make green/coriander chutney using curd instead of water; it will taste great with paneer tikka.
