Tonight’s Dinner

Had few to none ingredients in the refrigerator.

And honestly it’s too too hot outside, and I am too lazy to fetch food material from market

So did some mix n match

Made grilled paneer, Mushroom in white sauce and penne arrabbiata.

Grilled Paneer

Ingredients ( for 4 )
Paneer 800 gms
Hung curd (Yoghurt) 100 gms
Kashmiri chilli powder 1 tsp
Crushed Dried Mint 1 tsp
Mustard oil 1 tbsp
Ginger – garlic paste 1 tbsp

Ajwain ( roasted and slightly crushed )

1 tsp
Roasted cumin powder 1 tsp
Peppers (coloured ) and onions ( cut into cubes ) 200 gms
White butter ( melted ) 50 gms
Salt To taste
Chaat Masala 1 tsp


Method :

  1. Cut the paneer into chunky cubes.
  2. Sprinkle mustard oil
  3. Make a marination with the ginger garlic paste, salt, chilli powder, ajwain.
  4. Marinate paneer for at leasta 2 hours for more softness.  
  5. Arrange paneer on a skewer alternating with peppers, onions.
  6. Cook in a tandoor or on hot grill basting occasionally with white butter.
  7. I have no tandoor I used a regular heavy pan for grilling effect.  Alternatively you can use a electric grill. Arrange along with the pepper, pineapple pieces and onions.


Sprinkle Mustard oil. You can use Olive oil instead
Marinate Paneer in Mustard oil, chilli powder, dry mint leaves, yogurt
Add beaten yoghurt, if possible strained for at least half n hour.
Marinate for 1 hour to 2 hours in refrigerator. Heat a griddle pan or regular pan and place them in it.
Cook them on high till all moister is absorbed, turn them on the other side and finish
I cooked mushroom in butter and White wine. Saved some liquid from the mushroom too. Emptied the pan and made bechamel in the same pan
Made bechamel, added mushroom with the juices
I love spinach so added few spinach leaves, and served
Penne pasta in Home-made tomato Sugo
