bbq-paneer2Paneer is the main vegetarian protein eaten in India and it is a perfect foil for Indian flavours. Paneer is prepared by adding food acid, such as lemon juice, vinegar, citric acid or yogurt, to hot milk to separate the curds from the whey Ref.

In this dish paneer, paneer cubes marinated with simple ingredients like honey, chilli and garlic and grilled along with vegetables. Paneer barbecue will be a nice dish for BBQ parties and dinner parties and also can be served as a snack. Only thing to keep in mind is that paneer is very delicate and soft. I have other paneer dishes like Chikki Porichathu, Cucumber Paneer Sandwich, Matar Paneer

As climate is better here in Abu Dhabi it’s nice to spend time outside, and so is the idea of BBQ.

  3. Thank you all, for the wonderful comments and likes


  4. Looks great. Do you have to worry about the paneer sticking to the grill?


    1. You might need to drizzle a little more oil to prevent the paneer from sticking… or You may use a non stick pan…
      what i do is I keep it in the freezer; grill it cold , so that it will not stick to the pan or break…
