Chilli Paneer Recipe - Chilli Paneer Dry Recipe - How to make chilli paneer

Chilli Paneer
Chilli Paneer is a indo chinese starter which is really very easy to prepare at home.Actually soups and starters are out of my menu, I start with the dishes right away. So the first time I tasted chilli paneer was very recently only, and the one served in the restaurant was more like gobi 65 and they called it chilli paneer. So I browsed to find the exact recipe and after few googling I came up with this recipe.
Chilli Paneer Recipe

Soya sauce - 1/2 tsp
Green Chilli Sauce - 1/2 tsp (optional)

Celery / Spring Onions - 1/2 tbsp chopped finely(I used 1/2 tbsp Coriander leaves instead)

Salt to taste

For the marinade:

Maida - 1 tbsp
Corn flour - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1/4 tsp

  4. Then add the toasted paneer and give a quick stir. Finally garnish with chopped coriander leaves and switch off.Serve as a accompaniment with fried rice or just as a starter and am sure you will make this often.

The fusion of indo chinese sauces with the flavour of coriander leaves tastes juts out of the world. I served it with egg fried rice and hubby totally loved the combination.

My Notes:

  • You can even adding the remaining cornflour maida marinade batter but it tends to stick so I avoid it.
  • You can make a more saucy version too, I have given the semi dry version of chilli paneer.
  • I toasted the paneer in a non stick tawa, you can deep fry in oil too.
