Tandoori Grilled Paneer Cheese with Vegetables

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.
