12 ounce package paneer (cut into 1" cubes)

1 tablespoon avocado oil (or olive oil)

3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

3/4 teaspoon ground coriander

3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

3/4 teaspoon salt


Cut the paneer into cubes that are approximately 1” in size.

Preheat your air fryer to 400ºF (204ºC) for at least 3 minutes, according to your manufacturer’s instructions.

Add the avocado oil (or olive oil) to a large bowl, along with the paprika, coriander, cumin, turmeric, and salt.

Stir the spices and oil together to form a paste.

Add the paneer cubes into the oil and seasoning mixture, and toss well to coat the paneer in the seasoned oil.

Place the paneer into the air fryer in a single layer and cook for 5-8 minutes. If possible, shake the basket halfway through cooking.

Remove from the air fryer and serve immediately. Spear onto skewers if desired, or serve with toothpicks.
