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)
  • 250 gms (cubed) Paneer
  • 1/4 cup of each color, diced Capscicum /Bell Pepper (Green, Orange, Red, Yellow)
  • 1/2 diced Onion
  • 4 tsp Tomato Ketchup
  • 3 tsp Barbeque Sauce
  • 3 tsp Soya Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp Chili Powder
  • few sprigs (Garanishing) Coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp (I have not used in this prep) Lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 5 (make a small slit on the top with knife) Green Chili
  • 2 tsp (Garnishing) Grated Paneer
  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. Then add green chili, capsicum and saute for 4 minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Now add salt and then paneer. Saute for 2-3 minutes and remove it from flame.
  4. Garnish it with coriander leaves, grated paneer and squeeze some lime juice (around 1 tsp) before serving. Serve it hot.
  5. 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.
