  2. In a large bowl, mix together the garlic, ginger, yogurt, spices, and salt. Add the broccoli, paneer, tomato, and onion, and gently fold into the yogurt mixture.
  3. Coat the baking tray with half of the melted butter. Spread the broccoli and paneer mixture onto the tray in a single layer. Pour the remaining butter on top, and stir to coat.

Tips!

For more color, you can add red pepper, cauliflower, or cucumber, and serve with cilantro and lemon wedges.

If paneer is difficult to find in your area, halloumi or panela cheese make great substitutes.

    That looks so good, but paneer is really hard to find in my area. I've learned that it's fairly easy to make paneer cheese if you have an instant pot (or just a regular pot, too!). The only ingredients are Half 'n Half and either vinegar or lemon juice. Give making your own paneer a try if you can't find it in the stores.

    It's impossible to find in my area as well, but I found a recipe for it. Hopefully the halloumi I substituted tonight works. It smells really good as it bakes.
