Paneer Toast with Ras El Hanout

Protein rich meals are what my body needs for recovery, recuperation and rejuvenation. Paneer is a favourite go-to, and I love concocting something different each time. This is a spur-of-the-moment creation with my all-time favourite spice mix – ras-el-hanout.
The balance of flavours of heady aromatic spices, the soft paneer and fresh mint is a lovely combination and a great way to kickstart the morning breakfast – a cup up mint tea on the side doesn’t hurt!
