I read an article from NPR last week, about McDonald's plans to open stores in India near temple sites, but featuring vegetarian menus. (My feelings about that will have to wait for another time and place.)
One of the dishes mentioned was the McSpicy Paneer; a sandwich made with a tempura-d slab of paneer.
Ok; I don't eat fast food. And if I did...it wouldn't be at a McD's. But this? This intrigued me.
Unfortunately, I couldn't find much beyond a general description for the sandwich so I decided to just wing it.
A spiced mayo spread on the bottom half of a roll, followed by lettuce and a thick slice of tomato, then slices of batter-dipped and quick-fried paneer, and finished with raita.
The result? Quite good, actually. A bit too much food (which I suppose is on par with a chain restaurant sandwich), but tasty.
We'd rather have used a tamarind chutney in place of the spiced mayo, but couldn't find ours.
Definitely worth further experimentation, though.
