Grilled Paneer makes for the perfect appetizer, whether it is for simple dinners or even dinner parties for guests. Not only is Grilled Paneer a great, flavourful dish, but it is also filling as well.

So, to make the Grilled Paneer, firstly cut the paneer into the sizes and shapes that you are looking to cook and serve and drain the water out completely. In a separate mixing bowl, mix tomato ketchup, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt, and apply this marinade evenly on all the sides of the paneer pieces, and keep the marinated paneer aside for about half an hour.

For the finale, arrange the marinated pieces of paneer on a grill pan with oil and grill them on medium heat until the paneer assumes a golden-brown colour on both sides (cook for at least 7 minutes for each side). Your paneer is ready to be served. Arrange the pieces on a plate with some fresh salad and green chutney and enjoy!
