Chili Paneer

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
Servings: 1 yield(s)
  • 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)
  1. 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.
  2. Then add green chili, capsicum and saute for 4 minutes.
  3. Now add barbeque sauce, tomato ketchup, hot sauce and soya sauce. Mix it well.
  4. Add some  chili powder if you like it spicy.
  5. Saute for another 3 minutes until the sauce blends well with the vegies.
  6. Now add salt and then paneer. Saute for 2-3 minutes and remove it from flame.
  7. Garnish it with coriander leaves, grated paneer and squeeze some lime juice (around 1 tsp) before serving.
  8. Serve it hot.Alternatively this recipe can be used to prepare grilled paneer.
  9. The method would be to add all the ingredients in a large bowl except coriander leaves, grated paneer and lime.
  10. Mix it well, marinate for 20 minutes and put them on a grill.
  11. Cook until you get the desired texture. Remove, garnish and serve.
