Paneer takes on any flavours that you put with it. Here, mildly spiced with curry, it goes perfectly with the earthy beetroot and sweet mango chutney. You could thread the paneer onto skewers if you were having a barbeque.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 small beetroots, scrubbed and quartered, and any small leaves reserved
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 red onion, cut into wedges through the root
225g paneer
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
3 teaspoon curry powder
4 small naan breads
4 tablespoons greek yogurt
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
4 tablespoons mango chutney
salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
handful chopped coriander
1 lime, cut into wedges

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Put the beetroots on a baking tray and toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil and the cumin seeds. Roast for 40 minutes, but after 20 minutes, stir in the onion. You want the beets to be tender but still with a little bite.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the paneer into 2cm/1in cubes and add to a bowl with the turmeric and 1 teaspoon of the curry powder, then stir to coat. Heat a frying pan, add the remaining oil and cook the paneer until golden and soft. Remove and toss with the roasted beets.
  3. Heat the naan breads in a warm oven. Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, and remaining curry powder in a small bowl. Season to taste. Top the warmed naans with a dollop of curry mayo, paneer, and beets. Drizzle with the mango chutney and a sprinkling of coriander, and any reserved beet leaves. Squeeze over the lime juice just before serving.
