Chilli Paneer Dry Recipe | Paneer Recipes

In this space, I have very limited paneer and north indian dishes. Though I make paneer dishes often, I missed to click and post it here. I will focus more on this in the near future. I have already posted paneer butter masala here, which is one of the popular posts in Happy's cook. Whenever I need any dry paneer recipe to accompany fried rice, I go for this chilli paneer. It's a lovely combination and today I am sharing you this recipe. 
Ingredients:
Paneer - 1 cup cubed
Onion - 1 cubed
Capsicum - 1 cubed
Ginger - 1 inch piece chopped finely
Garlic - 6 chopped finely
Green Chilli - 1 chopped finely
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp chopped finely
Green Chilli Sauce - 1/2 tsp
Tomato sauce - 1 tbsp
Soya sauce - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - as required
To Marinate: 
Maida - 1 tbsp
Corn flour - 1 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp 
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - as required
Water - as required 
Method:
1. Slice the paneer,onion,capsicum into small cubes. Chop the coriander, green chilli, ginger and garlic finely. Make thick batter with items under 'To marinate'. Coat the paneer pieces in this marinade. Deep fry the paneer cubes in oil.
2. Drain it in tissue paper and leave it aside. In a pan, add some oil. Saute the ginger,garlic and green chilli for a minute. Then add the cubed onion and capsium, saute it till the onion turns slightly browned.
3. Add the green chilli sauce, tomato sauce, soya sauce and pepper powder. Mix it well to combine and adjust the salt. Toss in the cubed paneer until the sauces coats well with the paneer cubes. Finally sprinkle the coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
This goes well with fried rice or noodles. This can also be served as starter. Kids will love it.
Points to remember:
  • If you are more concerned about the deep frying part, just toast the paneer cubes in dosa tawa with little oil and then proceed with the same process.
  • When adding the sauces, make sure the flame is high for a minute and then reduce it. This is for the sauces to incorporate well.
  • Adding chopped garlic gives lovely flavor, so don't skip it.
Warm Regards,
