Tandoori Paneer with Onion & Capsicum Rings

                                                                           


A delightful paneer dish that I tried from Nita Mehta's Low Calorie cooking from Indian Kitchen. This dish is very simple and can be served as starter or side dish.  I can guarantee you that this will be a hit amongst your friends when you have a party in evening.


Serves: 4, Cooking time: 10 minutes ,Grilled time: 10 minutes


Ingredients:
250 gms Paneer (cottage cheese) cut into 1" cubes
2 Capsicums- cut into fine rings
2 Onions -cut into fine rings
1 tsp Lemon juice
3/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp Red color
1 tbsp Oil
1/4 Black salt 
1/4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Tandoori Masala


Grind to paste:
1 1/2" Ginger
2-3 Green chillies
1 tsp Cumin seeds
3-4 flakes Garlic


Method:
Cut paneer pieces into 1" square and keep aside. Grind garlic, jeera and green chillies to a thick paste. Try not to add water while grinding. Add salt, chilli powder and lemon juice to the paste. Add little red color and mix well.
Apply 3/4 of this paste nicely on all the paneer pieces. And keep the left over paste aside. Grill this paneer on a greased wire rack and grill for 10 minutes till it is dry and slightly crispy. Keep aside till serving time.
At serving time, heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Fry onion and capsicum rings for a few minutes till onions turn transparent. Now add ginger paste and few drops of lemon juice. Add black salt and adjust the salt too. Add paneer pieces. Sprinkle tandoori masala. Toss it for few minutes till the paneer turns soft and is mixed well with masala. Serve immediately.

  43. Dear Deepa
    I liked this paneer dish. Will try soon especially the cooking procedure and spicing.
    This time I could not meet you but I will certainly try to meet you and Sayantani during my next trip. It will be great fun if both families travel together. You will fall in love with Kakima in 2 minutes.
    Have a nice week ahead
