For the grilled Paneer

  • 200 gram paneer
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp Paprika powder
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste

For the dressing

  • 1/4 cup Mango Puree
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 green chilli chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Salt to taste

For assembling the salad

  • 8-10 cherries de-pitted
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1/2 cup lettuce leaves
  • 1/3 cup rocket leaves


  • For grilling paneer, mix together sesame seeds, salt and paprika powder. Coat sliced paneer pieces in it and grill on both sides till golden brown. I use a silicon brush to grease my pan lightly
  • Mix all the dressing ingredients well in a old jam bottle. They will just emulsify and not really blend fully well and that is fine
  • Mix all salad ingredients, grilled paneer and pour salad dressing on it just before serving
  • Enjoy with a side of soup or a meal in itself
