I didn't make the second part of the recipe, but the marinade for this is awesome. I marinated my paneer overnight and the flavor really shone the next day. It was so good dribbled with some lemon juice and on some field greens. Next time, when I am better stocked up on fresh produce, I plain to make it with the veggies and chaat masala. Thanks for posting this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade with some salt and set aside.
  2. Juliennes the veggies and add the chat masala and remaining marinade (if any) to them.
  3. Brush the marinade on the paneer slices and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp butter/oil and fry the paneer on both sides till well done (browned). Alternatively, you can brush each paneer piece with some oil and bake in a 350 degree F oven till done.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp oil and stir fry the veggies till they are crisp. Just like the paneer, you can alternatively bake these in an oven till they are done.
  6. In a platter, arrange the paneer slices in the middle and place the veggies around it. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve hot.
