How to make spiced paneer

       During one of our get togethers at a friend's place , she served some grilled paneer which tasted great. Since then it has become a regular at my place. I quickly marinade some paneer with curd and spices and later grill them  whenever I feel like. This seems to be a quick option nowadays.
        And recently when I saw the spiced paneer recipe in preeti's blog, it sounded quite interesting. And when served this way makes a good and delicious starter during parties, an absolute delight for paneer lovers like me!!
spiced paneer
Ingredients-
Milk- 1 litre
Lemon juice- 1/4 cup or more
Red chilly flakes- I just crushed some dried red chillies a little in my spice mixer
Cumin seed powder- 1tsp
Coriander leaves- a small bunch finely chopped
Salt - 1tsp
Olive oil- 1 tbsp
spiced paneer
Method
     Boil the milk. Add the coriander, cumin powder and red chilly flakes. Now add the lemon juice stirring simultaneously. The milk will coagulate/curdle. Now place a strainer on a large steel vessel. Line the strainer with a muslin cloth. Now pour the curdled milk over the assembled strainer. The liquid portion which is collected below is called whey. Tie a knot to the cloth by squeezing out the excess liquid. Let it remain on the assembled strainer. Place some heavy weight object on the top. Let the water drain completely for around 1.5 to 2 hours. You can place the block of paneer in the refigerator.
         You can use the spiced paneer just as you use the regular paneer. What I did was, I cut them into cubes, sprinkled some salt and left it for 30 minutes. Then I placed them on a hot tava/girdle , drizzled some oil on the sides, roasted them till they were a golden brown in colour.Sprinkle some red chiily powder and chaat masala if you want. You can serve this as a starter along with some ketchup.

Looks delicious...I tried making this a long time back but the chillies and garlic I used would just float to the top. Maybe I did not give the paneer a good swig. Will try this since I make paneer almost every day.
