With the summer ending and Autumn is gradually creeping upon us, I feel I still want to savour the al fresco dining experience. With the rain it's impossible to light a barbecue and cook outside so what better way than to create the same barbecued food indoors on a griddle and pair it up with some delicious salads and awesome drinks such as Yeni Raki.
Yeni Raki is Turkey's world famous national drink. It has the most aromatic anise flavour made with distilling grapes and aniseed. It makes the meal perfect when paired with appetisers and grilled foods.
I was most inspired by the dishes, but being vegetarian they were not suitable for my diet and so I decided to create my very own vegetarian dish that could be paired with this amazing drink.
The succulent Paneer Tikka marinated in aromatic spices and griddled makes the perfect vegetarian option to go with the Yeni Reki. You can see the lovely recipe below.
- 240 g Block of paneer
- 1 Red Capsicum
- 1 Green Capsicum
- 1/2 teaspoon Ginger paste
- 1/2 teaspoon Green chilli minced
- 1/2 teaspoon Garlic paste
- 4 tablespoons Natural yoghurt
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Red chilli powder
- 1 tablespoon Tikka masala paste
- 1 tablespoon Fresh Coriander
- 1 small Red Onion
- 1 tablespoon Lemon juice
- 1/2 tablespoon Olive oil
