Chilli Paneer (Quick 'n' Easy)

I have to admit i was not a big fan of Paneer in the beginning due to it's dense and fatty nature. I always use TOFU in place of Paneer before. During my recent stay in India, as it's readily available in all the markets or some of the good and quick Paneer recipes i found, some how I have gotten into making lot of Paneer Dishes and now there is no turning back. As my sister is visiting today I was planning to make something special and started making the recent Panner hit recipe with Tomato. Then it started raining and now I am in the mood to make something spicy, zesty and lip smacking dish. So switched gears and made this quick fix appetizer with Paneer and  absolutely loved it. so did my sister like it? You Bet! Here is the recipe enjoy!

Chili Paneer
Paneer - 1 cup ( cubed)
Onion - 1/2 of small
Green Bell Pepper (capsicum) - 1/2 medium
Red Bell Pepper - 1/2 medium

Garlic - 1 Tbsp
Green Chili - 5

Ginger garlic paste - 1 /2 tsp
Soy sauce - 1 Tbsp
Green Chili Sauce - 1 Tbsp
Tomato sauce ( ketchup) - 1 tsp
Corn Starch - 1 tbsp
salt - 1/2 tsp
black pepper - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Spring Onions - 1 Tbsp

  1. Chop the Panner block into bite size pieces. Add 1 tsp oil to the non-stick  pan and saute them until they turn slightly brown on all sides. Switch off the heat and keep it aside.
  2. Take 2 Tbsp of water in a small bowl and add the Corn Starch and mix it well.
  3. Heat 1 tsp on oil in a non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot, add chopped onion, green chili and garlic. saute them for 2 min on high heat. Add Chopped Green and Red Bell Pepper to the Pan.
  4. now add soy sauce, ginger garlic paste, green chili sauce and tomato sauce to the pan and mix it very well. 
  5. Add Panner cubes to the pan, mix well until it coats with all sauces. Now add salt and black pepper (freshly ground) and give it a quick stir.
  6. Add the corn starch paste to the pan and mix it well as it makes the sauces thick.Taste and adjust the seasonings.
  7. Turn off the heat and transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with spring onions. 

Ta daa, spicy and zesty Chili Panner is ready in minutes and now it's time to enjoy that rain with this Chili Panner, if you excuse me :-P!

  • To add some color I have added red bell pepper also in the recipe, but it is optional. 
  • After adding the Panner to the sauces, be careful when you stir, Paneer becomes soft at this stage and it can easily break. 
  • Watch out, as this is very easy to make it can turn into addiction, if you care for your calories, you can do the same recipe with TOFU  with less damage to your diet. :-)
