Paneer Tikka (Spicy Grilled Indian Cottage Cheese Cubes)

400g paneer

For the marinade: 

5 tablespoons plain yoghurt

3 tablespoons homemade tandoori masala

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 inch piece of ginger, grated 

1/2 tablespoon unscented oil (don't use extra virgin) 

Salt to taste (I used about a teaspoon of coarse sea salt) 

To serve: 

Small handful fresh cilantro (coriander) and mint, chopped roughly

Lime and lemon wedges 


Chop the paneer into even 1 inch cubes. 

Whisk together the ingredients for the marinade. Taste and adjust seasoning. 

Pour the marinade over the paneer cubes and marinate for at least 1 - 2 hours. 

Preheat a grill or the barbeque, and grill for between 4 - 5 minutes, turning a couple of times, until the paneer begins to just lightly char around the edges.

Remove to a serving plate or bowl, sprinkle over the fresh herbs and serve immediatley with wedges of lime and lemon to squeeze over.
