Method

Step 1

Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Preheat oven to 180°C.

Step 2

Using a fine grater, grate the skin of the lemon – be careful to grate the skin only and not the white pith underneath. When done, halve the lemons and juice.

Step 3

Stack the roti and wrap in tin foil. Place in the middle of the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes. When done, turn the oven off and keep warm.

Step 4

Place a large saucepan of lightly salted water on to boil. When boiling toss in the broccoli florets and cook for about 3 minutes. They should still be crunchy. Remove from the stove. Pour about half a cup of the cooking water into a jug/bowl. Drain the broccoli in the colander and set aside.

Step 5

Heat a few glugs of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Season the paneer cubes with salt and pepper and then fry them in the hot oil until golden brown – about 2 minutes on each side. Move the paneer to the side of the pan and add the garlic, chilli, garam masala and a splash of the reserved cooking water from the broccoli. Cook for about a minute and then add the broccoli, lemon zest and lemon juice. Stir for a few minutes to heat through.

Step 6

To serve, divide the paneer and broccoli between the plates and place a warm roti on the side.
