Rain almost started, and the market is booming with fresh corn. We all grew up eating roadside roasted Indian corn. Seasoning of lemon, black salt, and red chili powder was the showstopper of those corn days. Remembering those street corns, I have recreated the corn paneer salad recipe. I have prepared the fresh seasoning mix to make this salad more flavorful. 

To prepare this easy paneer salad, in a bowl, add the boiled corn kernels, roasted or grilled paneer, chopped vegetables like onion, tomato, capsicum, etc. Quickly prepare the seasoning mix by combining red chili powder, black salt, roasted cumin powder, carom seeds, black powder, garlic powder, oregano, and chili flakes. Add this seasoning mix to the salad as per taste. Add lemon juice as per taste and mix it nicely. Let it rest until it releases all the flavors. Finish the salad with a tbsp of salad oil and a lot of coriander leaves. Serve this salad fresh, and enjoy!

If you are searching for some easy and tasty yet healthy paneer salad recipes to add to your menu, you must try this colorful corn paneer salad recipe. Here, I have added roasted homemade paneer in place of raw paneer. When you roast / grill the paneer, it will turn soft, and it will melt in your mouth. So, where the vegetables are crunchy, roasted paneer will add a different texture to your bite. For the seasoning mix, I took inspiration from the Mexican seasoning mix. For No onion, No garlic Paneer Corn Salad, skip onion and garlic powder.
