      Instructions
      1. First, prepare the paneer. Combine the yogurt, cumin, turmeric and salt in a bowl. Add the paneer pieces, mix well and leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
      2.  To make the dressing, heat one teaspoon of the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for one minute, then add the peanuts, chilli and salt and cook for a few seconds more.
      3.  Transfer the peanut mixture to a mini food processor, add the remaining oil and the measured water and blitz the mixture to a paste.
      4.  Set the frying pan you used to make the dressing over medium heat. Heat the sunflower oil then add the paneer pieces and fry for a minute on each side, until slightly golden.
      5.  Transfer them to a bowl, cover closely with cling film (to keep the paneer soft) and set aside while you prepare the salad.
      6. Arrange the salad leaves in a large serving bowl. Pour over the dressing and toss well.Lay the paneer pieces on top of the salad, scatter over some sliced red chilli to garnish and serve immediately.
