I was so much busy today but at last I got some free time at night so I thought to cook something quick and here comes the result…
SSJ’s TEA SMOKED PANEER WITH SWEET n SOUR POMEGRANATE SAUCE
This recipe was a mix inspiration from my 2 favorites : The Spiced Men of Britain and The Bakers Brothers.
Paneer (Cottage Cheese) – 200 gms.
Salt – ½ tsp.
Pepper powder – 1 tsp. (Optional)
Butter – 25 gms. (3tbsp.)
Oil – 1tsp.
Coriander – few leaves
Pomegranate seeds – ¼ cup
Lemon juice – 2tbsp.
Ginger – 2inches , grated
Sugar – 1tsp.
For Smoke :
Rice (any) – ½ cup
Sugar – 2 tbsp.
Tea leaves (Any) – 1 tbsp.
Cut paneer in ½ inch thick big slices and marinate with pepper powder.
Put rice than sugar and tea leave in a pan and put a grill on it. Now heat pan on medium flame and put marinated paneer slices on grill and cover with a lid/ plate for 3-4 minutes or till smoke comes out. Now change the side of paneer pieces and smoke for 2-3 minutes on another side too.
Heat ½ tbsp. butter with ½ tsp. oil in another pan and just sauté full coriander leaves with stem for just 1 minute and keep aside.
Now heat leftover butter with ½ tsp. oil. Add lemon juice to grated ginger and when ginger changes color just press it through a strainer and add this juice to pan with sugar. Add pomegranate seeds at last and cook for just 2 minutes on high heat.
Spread buttery coriander on plate, adjust Smoked paneer pieces and serve with ready sauce on it.
That’s it. Simple easy and soooo delicious. Trust me, when you are fasting, it will make your day. Try it…
