  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 green chillies Slit lengthwise

How to make Chilli Paneer (Semi Dry)

  1. Make a paste of corn flour, salt, pepper powder and keep it aside. Heat a heavy bottom pan. Add 2 tsp of oil and shallow fry the paneer cubes. Once done, remove them from the pan and place them on a kitchen towel to drain excess oil if any.
  2. In the same pan, add a tsp of oil to heat. Then add in the chopped chillies, ginger and crushed garlic. Saute on a high heat for about a minute. Then add in the onions and saute for 2 mins.
  3. The onions should be undercooked. Now add in the bell peppers and saute on a high heat for about 2 mins. Then add in the vinegar, soya sauce, chilli sauce and mix it well.
  4. Add in the shallow fried paneer, the corn flour paste and mix it well. Turn off the flame after 2 mins. (Ensure the onions and bell peppers are crunchy.)
  5. Garnish with the roasted sesame seeds and finely chopped chillies. Serve it with fried rice or noodles.
