  1. Mix the yogurt, tandoori paste, and lemon juice together in a nonreactive bowl. Add the paneer and stir gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 and up to 24 hours.

  2. Thread the paneer cubes, red pepper, mushrooms, and zucchini onto the soaked skewers. Brush with the oil.

  3. Broil or grill the kebabs for about 10 minutes, until the paneer is tinged with brown. Serve hot, with lemon wedges, if desired.
