Hope you had a lovely Christmas at home! A few more days till the madness of New Year's Eve. Need a meat and sugar detox breather while staying festive? Enter paneer.
Achari paneer tikka
Best done on a BBQ grill, although pan-seared or oven-baked works too. Marinate three cups of cubed paneer with two tablespoons of yogurt, a spoon each of ginger and garlic paste, salt, turmeric, a spoon of cumin powder, crushed dried red chillies, some paanch phodon (seed combination of saunf, kalongi, jeera, methi and mustard), a small spoon of amchur powder, a pinch of garam masala, and a tiny drizzle of mustard oil. Marinate for a good two hours at least.
Skewer up with onions and capsicum, and grill to perfection :) Remember to take off the heat before they blacken and turn into rubber. Serve with naan and mint chutney!
