Saami and I were dreaming of grilling paneer and I was trying to come up with a marinade. I recently brought this over to his house and the intention was to BBQ an onion, green pepper and the slabs of marinaded paneer and make some sort of yummy grilled sandwich. However as plans go, it rained, so I threw it all in the wok and made a stir fry. This marinade would also be good with tofu if you do not eat cheese or cannot get paneer. I would suggest freezing and draining the tofu first, if you need more info look at my Preparing Tofu post.
Easy Curry Marinade
- 3 tsp Patak’s Bryani paste
- 1 tsp Patak’s Hot Curry Paste
- 1 large clove of garlic grated
- juice of one lemon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp good soy sauce
- fresh ground pepper to taste
Mix Marinade in a small bowl.
Cut up paneer, I made 1/4 inch thick slices (in the shape of cards then cut in half later when I stir fried it) , cubing will work if you use this on skewers on the BBQ.
Marinate for at least an hour, I left it for about 5 that night.
Making Kababs alternating paneer(or tofu) with red onion, mushrooms and peppers would be very good, but because of my constraints, I stir-fried paneer first in about 4 tablespoons of oil, removed form pan stir fried veggies until tender, then added in the panner to reheat( about one minute).
