In north Indian cuisine, paneer is the king of vegetarian meals and therefore, it makes frequent appearances on our dinning table. This unsalted cheese is versatile and easy to cook in different ways. From curries to scramble to char grill, it’s an ingredient that comes extremely handy. You could either go traditional, or take a different route and prepare something fancy. Grilled paneer pineapple tart , just delicious!
Several months back, I read this article, which had a quiz to evaluate how good is your taste bud. One of the questions in the quiz was about adding pineapple in a pizza. I guess Italians don’t really like the idea but our palate sure does enjoy it. Coincidently, I was answering those questions and prepping our pizza dinner at the same time. And the funny part is that I was topping the pizza with pineapple and paneer.
When I answered that question in positive, I did get a negative mark in the quiz. However, my palate threw a few thumbs up while eating the pizza. The flavor and texture combination worked for us.
Few weeks later, I used the same combination on a tart. You could make pastry dough for the tart but I took the easy path this time. I got my hands on some frozen buttery puff pastry and gave myself a little more time to enjoy the weekend.
