We have started a tradition in our family that we will celebrate the start of a new week with a grand Meatless Mondays feast. I love creating tasty vegetarian recipes which my family of three carnivore males could sink there teeth into! Homemade Paneer is so easy and only has two ingredients. I spiced up the Paneer with a Moroccan Chermoula Sauce! —onetribegourmet
fresh lemon juice
Moroccan Chermoula Sauce
garlic cloves, crushed
toasted cumin seeds, crushed or ground
fresh red chile,seeded, crushed or finely chopped
METHOD FOR HOMEMADE PANEER~ Place a colander lined with cheesecloth over a large bowl.
In a large heavy non stick pot, boil the milk on a medium heat. Add the lemon juice. Curd will start to form.
Drain the curd mixture in the colander/cheesecloth
Rinse the curd briefly under slow-running water to remove the lemon taste. Gather the edges together, squeeze the excess water, then knot together the cheesecloth and let it sit in the colander . Let it sit for 20 minutes.
To make the cheese dense for cutting into cubes; place a heavy object over the paneer for about an hour. Cut into bite size one inch square pieces for Kabobs.
METHOD FOR MOROCCAN CHERMOULA SAUCE~ Crush all of the ingredients in a mortar & pestle or a food processor.You can make extra and store in air tight jar in the fridge for few weeks.
METHOD FOR MARINATING & GRILLING PANEER KABOBS~Take the Paneer cubes and add the Chermoula Sauce. Marinate for 10 minutes.Place the Paneer cubes on skewers and grape tomatoes, alternate Paneer & Tomatoes or any vegetable of your choice.
Heat a grill pan on medium and coat it with olive oil. Grill the Paneer Kabobs for a minute on each side.Brush on some extra Chermoula Sauce over the Kebobs and cover to keep warm.
Hi I'm Sara and I love the art of food & travel. I have a blog called One Tribe Gourmet, where I share my passion for global cuisine and my travel adventures around the world.
I have always felt that food is the most common denominator that crosses all boundaries and brings people together. The ritual of “Breaking Bread” in every culture is a special bonding experience.
Personally I love to experience different cultures through there cuisines! My goal here is to encourage an individual who is interested in learning different global cuisine yet is a bit intimidated by it. I am here to help you, all you have to do is open your heart!!!
