Recipe Cook Time


Sesame and yogurt marinated paneer cubes baked in an oven. Serve with onion ringlets and chutney.


  • Oven temp: 400 F-204 C

    500 gm paneer (Indian cottage cheese), cut into 1 1/2" cubes

    2 tsp garlic paste

    2 tsp ginger paste

    1 tsp powdered black pepper

    1 Tbsp salt to taste

    2 Tbsp coriander leaves, chopped

    Green chillies, chopped to taste

    1/4 cup yogurt

    1/4 cup white sesame seeds (Safed til), roasted

    Oil to brush the paneer, optional

    Lemon wedges, to garnish

    Onion rings, to garnish


Mix all the ingredients except the oil and garnishes and leave for 20-30 minutes at least.

Place the paneer on a drip pan and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10mins.

Remove from oven, dab with oil and bake again for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can grill on a griller or a barbecue pit. (The drippings should definitely have a means of escape, or else the paneer will get soggy).

Serve hot, garnished with lemon and onion rings.
