PAN GRILLED PANEER PLATTER

PAN GRILLED PANEER PLATTERPin

I am back after a Hiatus. This year has started on a busy note as my older one moved out for further studies. He is moving on to the next stage on life. I am having a mixed bag of emotions as I am happy but I do miss him as well. Thanks to the technology that we can see and speak to him everyday. I am slowly coming back to my routine. Office has kept me busy as well. I promise to be back to regular blogging henceforth. Today I am sharing a delicious Pan Grilled Paneer Platter. You don’t need any sauce or chuntey to go with it. We enjoyed it by itself. The slightly charred sides gives a nice oomph factor.

What is Grill method of Cooking ?

Grilling is a method of cooking that involves dry heat applied to the surface of food, commonly from above, below or from the side.Food to be grilled is cooked on a grill (an open wire grid with a heat source above or below), using a cast iron/frying pan, or a grill pan (similar to a frying pan, but with raised ridges to mimic the wires of an open grill).Heat transfer to the food when using a grill is primarily through thermal radiation. Heat transfer when using a grill pan or griddle is by direct conduction.You can grill vegetables , meat , paneer etc. These days grilled dishes are popular in all parts of the world.

Marination for Pan Grilled Paneer?

Marination is a very important step for pan grilled Paneer and veggies. I have made it slightly spicy as my family loves it that way. Marinate the paneer and veggies with yogurt and spice mix.Refrigerate the marinated stuff for about 2 hours or overnight.The spice blend is absolutely flavorful. You can just play around with the spices . It tastes better when it sits in the marinade longer. I always prefer to make it just before serving as the texture is nice and maintained.

    Absolutely mouth watering and super tempting. Just love all that marinade has coated the paneer. Once marinated, the starter dish comes together so quickly. I’m tempted to make pan grilled paneer platter as soon as possible. And Preethi, you’re right technology allows us to keep in touch every day. Mothers missing their kids never ever gets over!

    Hugs to you Preethi. I know kids moving out is terrible for us but technology certainly helps.
    I think I will make this pan grilled paneer soon as the marinade is so delicious. The coating on the paneer too is simply .
