Achari Paneer Tikka Masala

Last night I grilled a lot of food, like chicken, veggies and paneer. We were stuffed with chicken, veggies and burgers! So I just stashed the paneer tikkas in the fridge. I was making eggplant bhartha for supper tonight and it just crossed my mind that why not use up that paneer? I didn't want to make the usual paneer butter masala etc. and since this one was already grilled and cooked, I had to quickly come up with something. And bingo! I saw the mixed pickle bottle! Achari paneer.... that's it! I quickly heated up the oil, added some of the masala from the pickle(not the oil), let it simmer for about 2 minutes or so and added paneer, pepper and onion pieces. I sprinkled some chaat masala powder at the end, right before serving. This was so delish!

Paneer and peppers were grilled with salt and pepper and a drizzle of oil. That's it. And who needs a recipe when we all know how to cook?! All we need is an idea and we can make any recipe our own! Am I right or what?!

And this is my entry for Jay's Paneer event.
