2 tsp garlic paste

1 tsp powdered black pepper
1 Tbsp salt to taste

How to Make Til-E-Paneer
1.Mix all the ingredients except the oil and garnishes and leave for 20-30 minutes at least.
2.Place the paneer on a drip pan and bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10mins.
3.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).
4.Serve hot, garnished with lemon and onion rings.
