Eat This Now – Paneer Shaslik at NAMASTE
So spicy and tasty, it could make a vegetarian out of ELV
If you google “paneer shaslik” you will find a dozen or so recipes for this Indian staple — none of them remotely alike.
Roughly speaking, it is a highly-spiced, vegetarian dish consisting of tightly packed farmer’s or cottage cheese (the paneer), skewered and grilled (the shaslik), blended with or placed over or under or around or through a bed or sauce of onions, tomatoes, peppers and whatever adjunct a creative cook wants to throw in.
In other words, its sort of like one of those chilies or stews where everyone has their own take on what spice blend or vegetables should be added to the grilled-but-not-melted cheese.
Having never been to Bombay, or gone to Goa, ELV cannot opine as to the veracity of various recipes.
But he can tell you the one on the menu at Namaste is pretty nifty.
It will bring sweat to your brow, warmth to your soul and a smile to your face.
One order — easily enough for four — is $16.
