This recipe is a good idea for entertaining. Perfect as an appetizer or snack. Tastes fantastic with  this mint and coriander chutney .

Another way to use this recipe is in a wrap using tortillas. Put in some onions and coriander chutney and the grilled paneer and roll. Ta daaaa.................!!!!!!!!!!!
Goes well in a lunch box! We make this atleast once a week for packed lunches or after school snacks..........
Yo can also do a grilled paneer sandwich with cheeeeeeeeeeese!:p The possibilities are endless......

Best for weeknight dinners too.....You can do the prep during the weekend and refrigerate it. So all you have to do take it out of the fridge and put it on the tawa.

Paneer (cottage cheese), cubed - 500g
oil/butter - for grilling the paneer

for the marination:
thick yoghurt - 1/3 cup 
chili powder - 2 tsps
turmeric powder  - 1/2 tsp
cumin powder - 1 tsp
coriander powder - 2 tsps
garam masala - 1 tsp
vinegar/ lime juice - 1 tbsps
ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp

  • Combine all the ingredients under the ''paneer marination''  in a large bowl.
  • cut the paneer into bite sized cubes
  • marinate the paneer in the yoghurt marinade and refrigerate for about 30 minutes or more
  • Heat some butter/oil in a large skillet and grill the paneer in batches . Let it brown slightly and evenly on all sides.
  • Don't over crowd the skillet. So place just enough paneer  in the skillet so its easy for you to turn the paneer on each side to brown.
  • serve hot with some coriander chutney
  • you can eat the paneer in a wrap with some green chutney in it.
