I knew I’d want to try out making paneer “summer rolls”. Soft paneer would pair well with flavors inspired by those typically found in the Vietnamese dish. Often, these summer rolls include a meat like shrimp and/or pork, vermicelli noodles, and fresh vegetables wrapped in rice paper. decided to go with paneer, mango, red pepper, cucumber and mint, but feel free to use whatever fresh vegetables you have — just know, though delicious, this isn’t by any means traditional.

While the sauce is typically made with hoisin and peanut, I decided to add in tamarind chutney to complement the paneer. The sauce makes plenty extra — toss with sesame seeds and cold noodles for a quick lunch. The result is a perfect dish for hot summers — there is almost no cooking required other than a quick grill on the paneer. Get the recipe for Paneer “Summer Rolls” with Peanut Tamarind Dipping Sauce.
