Paneer Teriyaki | How to make Teriyaki Style Cottage Cheese or Tofu at home | Make Paneer Teriyaki in 5 minutes

Hi Supermoms,

According to Wikipedia,  " Teriyaki is a cooking technique used in Japanese Cuisine in which foods are broiled/grilled with a glaze of soya sauce and sugar ".

I was absolutely tempted by a food video where chicken wings were glazed with this sauce. Wanted to try with Tofu and Cottage Cheese. And the dishes were a great success and I have already made it thrice !!!

You can try the same recipe with cauliflower, brocolli and also with mixed vegetables. I did not fry the paneer as I wanted to keep the recipe oil free. 

Freshly cubed Tofu or Paneer glazed with the Teriyaki sauce......YUM!!!!

Teriyaki Paneer

Teriyaki Paneer:

Preparation time : 5 minutes
Cooking time  : 7-8 minutes ( for this quantity)
Serves : 2

Ingredients :

200 gms Paneer or Tofu ( cubed)
1/4 cup dark soy sauce 
2 tablespoons brown sugar ( adjust)
1 & 1/2 teaspoon honey 
1 teaspoon lightly toasted sesame seeds
2 teaspoons Sriracha or any chilli sauce ( optional)

For Garnish:

Finely chopped spring onion greens 

Method :

  • Heat a medium size wide pan.
  • Add the soy sauce.
  • When the soy sauce starts boiling add the brown sugar.
  • Let the brown sugar melt completely and start caramalising.
  • Now add honey, chilli sauce and the sesame seeds.
  • When the sauce thickens, add the cubed paneer or Tofu.
  • Mix to coat them well and switch off.
  • Garnish with the spring onion greens and serve as a starter or along with noodles or rice.
Chef Tips:

1. You can also fry the paneer/tofu before adding it to the sauce. You can refer to this recipe for the stepwise pictures.

2. I did not make the sauce too thick as I was serving it as a side to Chilli Noodles.

Happy Cooking!

With love,
