Achari BBQ Paneer with Basil Aioli - End of summer BBQ

Tomorrow is the first day of Fall and we have to use up charcoal and Grill before we packed up for the next year, so we have to do BBQ.  We love achari flavors in our food, so when was thinking to do BBQ, this time I made marinade with achari flavors. We don't do much BBQ at home because we have very small coal grill and it takes lot of time to heat up but when it all set, everything comes out very quickly. So marinate paneer, peppers, onions separately in achari (pickle) flavor and had corn , eggplant and vegetarian sausage and links and burger for main. Everyone enjoyed and we packed up grill for next year. You can make this on gas too, you don't need grill, just use regular pan or heat up the oven and you are good to go. Bt the time everything was done, it was very dark and hungry so just took one or two pictures and we dig in .

Ingredients : 

1 block of paneer
1 cup of hung curd
4 tbsp of  achari spices
1 tbsp. of kasoori methi crushed
salt to taste
1 tbsp. ginger, garlic and chili paste


Cut paneer in big cubes.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients and add paneer in it.
Leave this in marinade for at least 3 hours, more is better.
When time to grill inside or outside, heat up the grill / oven.
Place aluminium foil or place it in skewers, grill it till nice marks comes on it.

Take it out and mix it with other vegetables if you are using or as it is also its yummy.
I served with Basil Aioli.

Ingredients :

1/3 cup fresh basil leaves chopped
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
few olives finely chopped
salt and lots of black pepper
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
5-6 tbsp. EVOO - Extra virgin olive oil


Mix everything in bowl and season it with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour , more is better too.
You can use it to dip bread or spread or even in pasta.
I used it to give more taste to my BBQ paneer.

Drizzle aioli over the BBQ Paneer and enjoy it.
