  10. 2 tbsp oil
  11. 1 tbsp lemon juice
  12. 2 Tablespoon Yoghurt (Dahi)

Note that instead of making individual pastes for Ginger, Garlic, Chilli we will do it together in one go.



  1. Take a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the Garlic and Ginger, Jeera powder, cut Green Chillies, chilli powder, lime juice and Dahi.
  3. Put it in the wet grinder and make a fine paste.
  4. Add the salt to taste.
  5. Add some drops of the orange colour (or Tandoor Paste or Tandoor Powder). – you can skip this if you do not have these ingredients. They are only to provide colour.
  6. Take the Paneer pieces and smear this paste on all sides.
  7. Leave the paneer for about an hour so that the mixture can dry up a bit.(Leaving overnight is a good idea as it infuses more flavour in Paneer)
  8. Put this paneer in a greased dish and grill for about 10 minutes till it is dry and crisp.
  9. Now take a fry pan and heat 2 tablespoons of oil in it.
  10. Put some diced onion cubes and capsicum pieces and shallow fry them.
  11. Add some marinade paste which you prepared and stir the onions and capsicum for 2 minutes
  12. Sprinkle some salt and stir for few seconds.
  13. Take a plate and put all the cooked paneer pieces and add the cooked capscicum and onions on top.
