Warm Paneer, Courgette & Pepper Salad

This is a spicy tasty salad for summer nights. For a vegan alternative replace the paneer with tofu. Firstly make a marinade by mixing together in a large bowl...
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 inch grated ginger
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • half teaspoon of mustard seeds
  • half teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes (adjust to personal preference!)
  • half a teaspoon of fenugreek leaves
  • 5 cardamon pods
Add to the marinade one courgette, two peppers (I used red & yellow for colour) and about 6 spring onions (all cut into chunky pieces). Also chop up a block of paneer and add this to the marinade. Stir in to the mixture, cover and leave for about an hour. Then put into an oven proof dish, and place under a medium grill for 20mins (approx) stirring occasionally.
Serve with a simple green salad. Handy tip - take out the cardamon pods before serving, cause you really don't want to bite in to one!
