Spicy Chilli Paneer

'PANEER', its such an ingredient, you make anything out of it, it definately shall taste good... And if any guests are coming this is a must. You can have them as a starter or in the main course. This spicy chilli paneer i learned from one of my childhood friend, Vineeta. She loves cooking and was so fast to prepare it, and then it tasted so yumm, that henceforth i always followed her recipe to make this.

You can have it as a starter, or even make gravy for it in no time and have it in your main course.


200 gm paneer (cottage cheese)
1 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp Refined flour(maida)
oil for deep frying

For the Sauce:

Oil 2 3 tbsp
Garlic 1 tbsp,chopped coarsely
Green chillies (slit) 3 4
Onion 1 big ,sliced thinly
Soya sauce 2 3 tsp
Tomato sauce 1 tbsp
Chilli sauce 1 tbsp
Capsicum ,cut into strips(optional)
Ajinomotto a pinch(optional)
Black pepper 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Cornflour 1 tsp,dissolved in ½ cup water(without lumps)


Cut the paneer into half inch cubes.
Make a thick paste of cornflour and refined flour(so as to coat paneer properly)
Coat the paneer cubes with paste and deep fry in hot oil till golden. Keep aside.

For the Sauce:

Heat oil in a pan.
Add garlic, green chillies ,and onions.
Saute till onions are done.
Add capsicum and cook till tender.
Add all the sauces,ajinomotto or salt and pepper.
Add the paneer pieces.
Simmer for few minutes till the sauce coats the paneer pieces.
You can serve this as appetizer by putting toothpick on bunch of paneer, capsicum and onion together.

And if you wish to make Gravy one,then before adding paneer...
Add one cup water and bring it to a boil. Mix well.
Add dissolved cornflour,to the sauce, Mix well.
Simmer for few minutes till the sauce begins to boil.
Serve hot.

As soya sauce contains salt, so add a bit less salt to the dish.
