Green tikka chickpeas & paneer

Say hello to your new favourite spice paste – Green Tikka! It adds oodles of zingy, aromatic flavour to all kinds of dishes. We’ve used paneer in this recipe but halloumi or firm tofu also work a treat.

  • ½ tsp Vegetable or Sunflower Oil
  • 226g pack paneer cut into 2cm cubes
  • 3 tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Green Tikka Masala Paste
  • 1/2 x 25g pack coriander, leaves picked, stalks finely chopped
  • 2 x 300g pouches Chickpeas, Spinach & Quinoa
  • 4 mini naans
  • 2 tbsp mango chutney


  1. In a frying pan, heat the oil over a medium-high heat. Fry the paneer for 5 minutes, turning the cubes regularly so each side browns. Transfer to a plate, then lower the heat to medium, spoon the tikka paste into the pan and cook for 1 minute. Add the coriander stalks, chickpea pouches, fried paneer and 4 tbsp water to the pan; season and cook for 5 minutes, until piping hot.

  2. Meanwhile, put another frying pan over a high heat, sprinkle each naan with 1 tbsp water and fry for 2 minutes on each side. Divide the paneer mixture between 4 plates, add ½ tbsp mango chutney to each, sprinkle over the coriander leaves and serve with the naan.
