Summer is a great time to enjoy our Tandoori marinade on vegetables or meat, and in this case, the classic Indian Paneer cheese. Halloumi is an excellent substitute if you cannot find paneer. Paneer is found at Indian grocery stores and Whole Foods stores in the refrigerated section.
Roasted vegetables are a fall classic, but, this recipe is great for summer. The yogurt preparation in this recipe is from a popular Indian yogurt side dish called 'Raita.' In Indian cooking, we usually cook brown lentils until they are mushy, but, in a salad, we do not overcook our lentils.
