Paneer is a fresh, firm and mild-tasting Indian cheese perfect for grilling. Serve with a mango and tomato chutney and a drizzle of curry vinaigrette for a unique twist on the classic Caprese salad.
For the paneer combine yoghurt, lemon juice, Garam Masala, Salt, Garlic Granules and Ginger in a small bowl until well blended. Place paneer in a large re-sealable plastic bag, add the yoghurt marinade and turn to coat well, place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, for the Mango Tomato Chutney, toast the Cumin Seeds in a large pan over a medium heat for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, mango, onion, Coriander, honey, Cinnamon and Salt. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring regularly until the tomatoes soften and the sauce is slightly thickened.
For the Curry vinaigrette, combine all ingredients in a small bowl with a wire whisk until well blended.
After the paneer has marinated, spray a griddle pan with oil and pre-heat to medium. Remove paneer from the marinade, discarding any remaining marinade. Grill paneer for 5-6 minutes, or until lightly browned, turning frequently. Cut into 1cm thick slices, then serve layered with the Mango Tomato Chutney and drizzled with the Curry Vinaigrette.
