Chilli paneer dry recipe
Star ingredients:paneer(cottage cheese) and green bell pepper
I always feel making Indo chinese dishes is way better than having them in resturants or fast food stalls.In resturants for sure they use ajinomoto which is not so good for us.It is said that ajinomoto is used to increase the taste,but I think you can very well increase the flavor and taste by just increasing the amount of ginger-garlic,pepper powder etc.Also whem home made you have complete control over sauces also.
200grams paneer cut into cubes
2 tablespoons corn flour
2 green bell pepper cubed
1 large onion sliced into cubes and separated
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons chilli sauce
3 teaspoons hot tomato sauce
1 teaspoon pepper powder
2 tablespoons finely chopped spring onion white(instead of celary)
1/2 teaspoon freshly crushed ginger garlic
1.Heat a thick cast iron tava and add the paneer cubes.Add 2 teaspoons oil and turn the pieces gently.Sprinklw corn flour over it and saute gently till the paneer cubes turn golden
2.Heat a kadai and add 2 teaspoons and add crushed ginger garlic,spring onion whites.Saute till nice aroma wafts out.
3.Now add the green bell pepper cubes and saute in high flame till they wilt a bit.
4.Add the onion cubes and saute till they turn light golden.
5.Now reduce the flame and add all the sauces,salt and pepper powder and mix well.
6.Add the sauteed paneer cubes and mix well. Now toss everything well in high flame for 2 minutes.

1.Spring onion imparts an authentic flaavor to Indo chines dishes.So don’t skip.You can also celary if available.
