Coming to the second day of vegetarian grilling, I am here with a delicious yet easy breezy recipe. The one thing I love being in paleo is paneer. It is one of the ingredient I have to eat daily and it is nearly five months since I started eating paneer for my dinner. And I still like it so much. It is one of the ingredients which takes care of my protein macros and so I can’t take it off my diet. But when there are so many recipes with paneer, why worry? I love baking paneer, but hubby is not such a huge fan. And he eats paneer only thrice a week, only on his vegetarian diet days. So the other four days, it is only me and I try to make different varieties in oven.
This recipe is one such dish which is so easy to put together. I always have Green Chutney in my fridge, which actually helps me to whip up chats in minutes. One day I tried using it with paneer and it was so good. I tried the stove top method too, but oven baking is the easiest. With grill setting in oven, the paneer gets ready in 20 – 30 minutes, but the time taken depends on how you want your paneer to be. If you like moist juicy paneer cubes, then cook it for lesser time. I like my paneer nice and crisp so I let it grill for longer time. Serve it along with lemon wedges and cucumber slices, I am sure you will love it.
