Chilli Paneer

Chilli Paneer is a traditional Chinese dish which is my personal favorite. The best part of this dish is that it can be easily served as a starter or accompanied with the main course. The credit for the original recipe goes to my mom and I have just made the necessary changes.

  • 3/4 cup paneer (cottage cheese), cut into 12 mm. ( 1/2") thick strips
  • oil for deep-frying

To prepare Batter
  • 1/4 cup Cornflour
  • 1/4 cup Plain flour (maida)
  • 1 tsp Soya Sauce
  • 1 pinch Baking powder
  • salt to taste

Other Ingredients
  • 1 tsp ginger (adrak)-Grated
  • 2 tsp garlic (lehsun)-chopped
  • 2 tsp celery-chopped
  • 1/4 cup spring onions-chopped
  • 2 to 3 green chillies-cut into 25 mm. (1") pieces
  • 1/4 cup capsicum-sliced
  • 2 tbsp sweet corn grains
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour mixed with 3 tablespoons water
  • 1tsp Oregano
  • 1tsp Ajinomoto
  • 1 tsp oil
  • salt to taste

    • 1/2 cup spring onion greens-chopped


    Combine Batter ingredients in a bowl and make a smooth batter by adding approximately ¼ cup of water.

    Coat paneer pieces with batter and deep fry in hot oil over a high flame

    Do it till paneer is golden brown.

    Drain on absorbent paper (tissue paper) to get rid of extra oil.

    Allow it to cool.

    How to proceed

    Heat oil.

    Add the ginger, garlic, celery, spring onion whites and green chillies and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes.

    Add capsicum, sweet corn grains and sauté again for a few more seconds.

    Now add ajinomoto, oregano, soya sauce, sugar, cornflour paste and salt.

    Let it boil.

    Add fried paneer and mix well.

    Serve hot garnished with the spring onion greens.
