Chilli Paneer

I never had Chilli Paneer in restaurants thinking it would be too hot. But when I saw the recipe of Chilli Potatoes in Tarla Dalal's Recipe, I really got interested as it was not much hot. She has mentioned that we can replace Potatoes by Paneer. As we eat Potatoes in various forms, I tried with Paneer. It came out well.



Ingredients:

Paneer Cubes 150g
Finely chopped Ginger ½ tsp
Finely chopped Garlic 1 tsp
Chillies 2-3 or as per your taste
Tomato Sauce 1 tsp
Soya Sauce 2 tbsp
Chilli Sauce 1 tbsp
Cornflour 2 tsp
Spring Onions
Water
Salt
Oil

Preparation:

Slit Chillies.

Method:

Heat Oil in a Pan. Add Paneer Cubes. Shallow fry until all sides of the cubes turn golden brown. Keep it aside in an absorbent Paper.

Heat Oil in a Pan. Add chopped Garlic, Ginger and chillies. Fry till they turn slightly brown. Add fried Paneer cubes, Soya Sauce, Tomato Sauce, Chilli Sauce and Salt. Mix well and fry for few seconds.

Now mix Cornflour in ½ cup of Water and add. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with Spring Onions.

Serves: 2
Serve as a Starter or side dish to Vegetable Fried Rice or Schezwan Rice.

Notes: In the original Recipe, 1 tsp chopped Chillies are used. But I slit chillies as we may bite them if chopped very small.
