My friend wanted me to post something vegetarian. So I kind of tweaked the chicken fry recipe and prepared Chili Paneer with almost same ingredients except those non-veg components. I had few guests last night, they said it was just too awesome. I was glad that the bowl was empty at the end of our dinner though there was nothing left for me to eat :-(. So here we go with the yummy yummy chili paneer with bell pepper
- Paneer - 250 gms (cubed)
- Capscicum /Bell Pepper (Green, Orange, Red, Yellow) - 1/4 cup of each color, diced
- Onion - 1/2 diced
- Tomato Ketchup - 4 tsp
- Barbeque Sauce - 3 tsp
- Soya Sauce - 3 tsp
- Hot sauce - 1/2 tsp
- Oil - 1 tbsp
- Salt to taste
- Chili Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
- Coriander leaves - few sprigs (Garanishing)
- Lemon juice - 1 tsp (I have not used in this prep)
- Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
- Green Chili - 5 (make a small slit on the top with knife)
- Grated Paneer - 2 tsp (Garnishing)
Add 1 tbsp of oil in a kadai, when it is hot add cumin seeds, wait for few seconds and then add onion and saute for 2 minutes on a medium flame. Then add green chili, capsicum and saute for 4 minutes.
Now add barbeque sauce, tomato ketchup, hot sauce and soya sauce. Mix it well. Add some chili powder if you like it spicy. Saute for another 3 minutes until the sauce blends well with the vegies. Now add salt and then paneer. Saute for 2-3 minutes and remove it from flame.
Garnish it with coriander leaves, grated paneer and squeeze some lime juice (around 1 tsp) before serving. Serve it hot.
Alternatively this recipe can be used to prepare grilled paneer. The method would be to add all the ingredients in a large bowl except coriander leaves, grated paneer and lime. Mix it well, marinate for 20 minutes and put them on a grill. Cook until you get the desired texture. Remove, garnish and serve.
