This quick paneer recipe is perfect for a brunch or a light supper. For an extra kick, add green chilli. I used Apetina paneer, which I think is one of the best shop-bought ones.




  • 1 finger aubergine
  • 1 green chilli (optional)
  • 1/2 white onion ( small)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/2 yellow pepper
  • 2 ts chopped coriander
  • 100 gr paneer
  • 1 ts curry powder or my aromatic Ayurveda style curry powder
  • pinch of pepper and salt
  • 2 tbs of olive oil


  1. Cut the aubergine in half and then half again so you have 4 quarters. Slice it into strips.
  2. Slice the pepper in strips
  3. Cut the tomato into small pieces ( not too small) and chop the onion
  4. If you like it hot, you might want to use 1 green chilli. Chop it up.
  5. Heat the olive oil add all ingredients apart from the tomato and curry powder and season it with pepper and salt.
  6. Fry on a low heat and make sure you stir it a few times ( approx. 5 min.). The aubergine needs to be slightly brown.
  7. In the meantime slice the paneer and fry gently in some olive oil. If you have a blow torch you can slightly brown it.
  8. Add the tomatoes and turn to the lowest heat. Let is simmer for approx. 3 min. The tomatoes shouldn’t be mussy.  Season again with pepper and salt and add the curry powder.
  9. Ready to eat! Add the vegetables on the plate sprinkle with coriander and put the paneer on top.
