1LemonJuice of 1 lemon for sprinkling before serving
Place paneer into a bowl and add oil and all the spices. Gently mix everything, taking care to not break the paneer. I found this easiest to do with my hands.
Allow this mixture to marinate for about 30 minutes.
Heat a skillet, and when it's hot, add two tablespoons of ghee. Lay the paneer cubes in a single layer in the pan.
Let it sear for 1-2 minutes, and then using tongs, turn the pieces to sear the other side. Once both sides are seared, you can reduce the heat a little to finish warming the paneer.
Spritz the lemon juice right before serving.
You can buy paneer ready-made at Indian grocery stores where it is typically in the frozen section. At the grocery store, they sell the paneer either plain or fried. You can also make it yourself using my very easy pressure cooker paneer recipe.
If you are looking for a substitute or can't find Paneer, try queso fresco. It has a similar consistency and taste.
