Recipe featured on Cover of our Vegetarian Delights Cookbook. Purchase HERE.

INGREDIENTS :

  • 2 cups paneer cubes, about 1″ each

  • 2 tsp garlic paste

  • 2 tsp ginger paste

  • 1 tsp chaat masala

  • 2 tsp chilli powder tandoori masala

  • 1 tsp powdered black pepper

  • 1 tbsp salt

  • A few drops of red colour

  • 3 tbsp vinegar OR 1 cup yogurt

  • Oil for brushing

  • 1 lemon quartered and juiced (can substitute 1 tsp lemon juice)

  • 1 onion sliced into rings – for garnish (I don’t like onions so  made a bed of romaine salad lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Salt and black pepper sprinkled on top)

METHOD:

  1. Mix all the ingredients, except the garnishes, and leave for 20-30 minutes.

  2. About 20 minutes before serving, place the paneer on a drip pan and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes. (Oven Temp: 400 F Degrees)

  3. Remove from oven, brush with oil and bake again for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill on a griller or a tandoor or barbecue pit. (The drippings should definitely have a means of escape, or else the paneer will get soggy)

  4. Serve hot, garnished with lemon and onion rings
