Chilli Paneer

My kids are both big fans of paneer.  They love Paneer Tikkas a lot and once we had Chilli paneer at Woodlands and they loved it and i tried to recreate it at home with no clue about the recipe and it turned out to be quite close.

I like this better than paneer tikkas as it is easier to make this. I use Nanak paneer that we get in the indian grocery store. I usually transfer it from the freezer to fridge few hours before i am planning to make and let it thaw in the fridge. When i am ready to make it, i put the unopened pack in hot water for few minutes to make it soft. Once the paneer is soft, cut it into small cubes.

Ingredients :

Paneer - 400gms

Capsicum - 1

Onion (Medium sized) - 1

Ching's Chilli Soy Sauce - 3 spoons

Salt - as required

Spring onions - 5 (finely chopped)

Green chillies - 4

Ginger - 1 small piece (grated)

Method :

First, heat a non stick tawa and spread a spoon of oil on it. Now toast the paneer cubes in medium-low for couple of minutes and toss them gently. Toast till they are golden brown.

In a pan, heat a spoon of oil and add the grated ginger and green chillies. Now add the onion and cook till they are translucent. Add the chopped capsicum and spring onions. Keep some aside for garnishing and add salt and cook it for sometime. The capsicum can be slightly crunchy. Now add the paneer and toss it and add the soy sauce. Reduce the heat and cover the pan and cook it on low for about 10 minutes. Now remove the pan and cook some more if you want it to be dry.

Garnish with springonions.
