Ingredients For Making Grilled Paneer:
This is a very versatile recipe and you can season as per your taste. Here I have used very minimum spices with a dash of homemade tomato ketchup. Tomato ketchup is optional and you can also use yogurt instead. In this recipe some chili powder, cumin powder and salt is added as seasoning. Below I have listed variations.
- You can use ginger-green chili paste and yogurt for flavor.
- Also you can use gram flour or chickpea flour, chili powder, garam masala and lemon or lime juice.
- For a varied flavor you can use olive oil, dried herbs, pepper powder and salt also.
Here I have grilled paneer on stove top using a cast iron grill pan. I find this pan very handy when I have to grill a small amount of paneer or other veggies. However you can also make this recipe in oven. instructions given below.
How To Make Grilled Paneer in oven.
- Prepare the paneer mixture as mentioned in the recipe. Preheat your oven at 220C to 240C.
- Line a baking sheet with foil or grease well.
- Arrange the paneer pieces in a skewer and bake or grill for 10-15 minutes until slightly charring occurs.
- If you do not have skewers you can place the paneer cube directly on baking tray and grill.
Serve grilled paneer as snack with green chutney. You can also make sandwiches with this grilled paneer. I made a quick sandwich with paneer pieces, bell peppers and sandwich chutney.
