Tandoori Paneer Recipe

Since I have recently gone vegan again after a short sojourn into vegetarianism over Christmas, I thought I would post one of my favourite vegetarian (but not vegan) recipes – Tandoori Paneer. Unfortunately it doesn’t ‘veganise’ very well. Tofu just isnt firm enough. I havent tried it with fake cheese yet, but I generally find that stuff tastes like plastic. Any ideas on how to veganise it are most welcome!

Ingredients 4 servings

2 blocks of paneer

handful of chopped fresh coriander

salt (to taste, depending on how salty your paneer is)

Spice mixture –

1 tbsp grated root ginger

1 tbsp crushed garlic

half tsp hot paprika / chilli powder

1 tsp tumeric

1 tbsp ground cumin

2 tbsp oil

2 tbsp lemon juice


1 Mix all the spices together

2. toss cubes of the paneer in the spice mix, adding in the coriander

3. spread the paneer on a tray and grill for 10-15 mins, until sizzling and crisp.
