I have tasted Paneer many times in restaurants, but had never tried cooking it at home. When I got recipe requests for Paneer chili and Paneer 65, I bought a pack of Paneer from Indian store here. I made Paneer chili and it was simply superb.
When I searched for Paneer chili, I got many recipes asking for deep frying of Paneer. I wanted to make non-deep fried version. So I followed Shynee’s Mashroom chili recipe with few changes. The final product was simply amazing. Even my husband who does not like Paneer, loved this dish.
1 cup Paneer chopped into cubes
3-4 green chilies
1 tea spn soya sauce
1 tea spn tomato ketchup
1/2 tea spn ginger-garlic paste
1/2 cup onions slices
1/2 cup capsicum slices
1 tbl spn oil
2-3 strands coriander leaves
Heat oil and fry the Paneer cubes till they turn slightly brownish. Take them out.
In the remaining oil, add ginger-garlic paste and onions. Fry till onions turn translucent. Add capsicum, slitted green chilies and fry till they become soft. Add soya sauce, tomato ketchup, salt and Paneer. Mix well. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Serve hot as a starter.
