Tossed and Turned Paneer

So this is one of those times when I open the fridge and I have a few sorry vegetables at the bottom of the crisper, nothing that you can make a whole dish out of. I wanted some protein - but didn't have any that matched up to my ingredients. So I finally pulled out my emergency ration of paneer. I freeze it when I buy it - for just such an occasion. It is good for about six months or so. Now the dilemma was - how do I cook it! I am starting to hate cooking the "curry" way. I wanted something different. So this is what I came up with - ENJOY!

For those of you wondering what paneer is - its the Indian version of cottage cheese and you can get it in any Indian or Pakistani store. 

You will need
1 packet paneer (about 250 grams)
1 large red onion
2 cloves of garlic
Salt to taste

You will also need
1 tsp dried thyme (crushed)
2 tbsp chopped coriander 
2 tbsp oil for cooking

And then....

2    tbsp white vinegar
1    tbsp paprika 
1/2 tbsp salt…
