I have tried paneer and veggies barbecue a couple of times now and I think I have the marinade perfected:). I use two different marinades - one tandoori and one mint. If I don't have a grill I have also tried to bake and then broil in the oven and it comes out just as fine. I use paneer, capsicum (all colors), yellow onion, zucchini and any combination of these will taste good. Here are the recipes -
- Yogurt - 3 cups
- Fresh ginger paste - 1/2 tsp
- Fresh garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
- Tandoori masala - 3 tsps
- Jeera dhania powder - 1 tsp
- Garam masala - 1/4th tsp
- Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
- Haldi - 1/4th tsp
Mix all the above ingredients and beat the yogurt until smooth. Add paneer and veggies and store in a ziploc bag. Refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor. Right before setting on the grill, sprinkle salt and tandoori masala for added flavor. After grilling sprinkle lemon juice.
You can also create a dry tandoori marinade with the same ingredients and by skipping the yogurt. You can also add some kasoori methi for added flavour.
- Mint leaves - 1 bunch
- Corriander leaves - 2 bunches
- Green chillies - 3/4
- Ginger - 1 inch piece
- Lemon juice - 1 tsp
- Water - enough to make the paste fine
Grind all the above ingredients into a fine paste and coat the paneer ad veggies evenly with it. Refrigerate for a couple of hours and then grill. Sprinkle with lime and sale before serving. Yogurt can also be added to this marinade if desired.
