chilli-paneer-dry-recipe
      Few weeks back I realized I make only few repeated paneer dishes at home which we all got bored ofRolling Eyes…Then when I saw this easy Chilli paneer recipe in a cookbook I borrowed from library,I just cant wait to try itHee hee,it was very simple yet one of the favourite style of recipe which my kid Hiroloves…He loves Indo Chinese fusions like Gobi manchrian etc..etc..He enjoyed it a lot as I expectedBatting Eyelashes..

Batter for frying Paneer cubes:



Oil As needed for deep frying

Corn flour 1 & 1/2 tblsp
Cooking soda a small pinch
Salt As needed (1/2 tsp)

Method

  1. Make a thick batter of maida and corn flour with salt,the batter consistency should be enough to coat the paneer smoothly.Deep fry the paneer cubes by dipping them in this batter ,drain in paper towel.
  2. chilli paneer dry
  3. Cube the onion,capsicum,slit the green chillies and crush the garlic flakes roughly.Heat a wide pan with 2 tsp oil and add the crushed garlic,green chillies,give a fry.Add the onion and fry till transparent.
  4. 2-chilli paneer dry
  5. And then add the capsicum. Give a stir in high flame.Reduce flame and add the sauces,pepper salt and mix well.

Notes
  • Pepper and garlic are the two things I love in this.
  • Goes well with fried rice or can have as starter.Eat hot!
  • If you want to avoid deep frying,just fry the paneer cubes alone in the pan until it turns golden brown here and there and proceed with the recipe.

  57. Dear Raji,

    A long time reader of ur lovely blog. Have never commented before, but have tried a lot of recipies from here. My fav remains, ur very easy home made pizza recipie.
    I have to share this incident with you: I wanted to make the puffs and went about searching for the puff pastry sheets, instead i picked up the ones that are used to make spring rolls and followed the puff making recipie - only change i made was i rolled the sheets in spring roll form.The result was surprisingly good, considering i had altered such a major element of the recipie and just when I was about to leave u a comment, I see you posted a spring roll recipie urself! With the remaing sheets, I made the spring rolls (this time the proper way) and they came out well. Thanks so much. Also you have an awesome blog and keep the good work up.

  80. Hi raks,
    jI tried this today.. came out well... Just wanted to ask a ques abt the storage... How do u store garam masala,coriander powder and all such items.. in refrigerator? I 'll store in a box.. I've seen my friends storing in refri.. So just want to ask u where do u store.. And also can gram flour,rice flour can also be stored in ref? Can u guide me which should and shouldn't be stored?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yes Kavitha, I store all these powders in my fridge. I arrange everything in the doors in small bottles.
    Also store the flours, that I use rarely and gets spoiled easily. I store them in zip locks and place them in either the racks or in the freezer, where ever I have place.

    ReplyDelete
  82. looks delicious!! just looking at the snaps makes my mouth water and encouraging me to cook :) thanks raji..

  83. hi raks
    i tried ur chilli paneer recipe yesterday.i am palnning to make this for a party.my problem was paneer is not getting coated with sauces and onina capsicum mix left a sseparate .what should i do to get it coated with paneer.can i pour more sauces or corn flour paste while making the base.pls guide me fast this is for new year.thanks

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hi Geetha, Yes you can dissolve a tsp of corn flour in a tblsp of water and sprinkle it while tossing to get a coat. Since the paneer is oily, it should get coated well, but still you can try this.

    ReplyDelete
