Chilli Paneer

WOW this is my all time favorite snack.I love to have at 'Food Ex' a bakery/Pizza Shop in Vizag. I usually go there to just have this but only on a 50-50 chances.They make it so well that they run out of it they it within no time. In my last India trip,I was rushing to the airport but felt like having it before I leave,went to the shop and that guy told me its almost done but it will take around 15 mins to serve,garnish and bring it to the counter,I literally pleased him to get just 1 for me as I need to go to catch my flight,he was good enough,brought it for me and I said Thank U So Much,enjoyed it with my loving mom.I still miss just tried it here,not very much similar but my taste buds were satisfied.

Paneer:1/2 pack Cut into diamond shapes or cubes (I used Nanak Paneer)
All Purpose Flour:1/4 cup
Salt:To taste
Pepper Powder:To Taste
Garlic:2-3 pods(crushed and very finely chopped)
Ajinamoto(Tasting Salt):A Pinch
Onion:1 medium(cut into length wise)
Capsicum:De-seeded and dicedGreen Chillies:4(slit)
Soya Sauce:1.5 spn
Veniger:1 spn
Red Chilli Sauce:1/2 spn
Tomato Ketchup:1 spn(optional,but I used it to my taste)
Oil:For Shallow Frying Paneer


1.Heat Oil in a pan,mean while take corn flour to a plate,roll the paneer cubes in this flour,so that they are well coated,remove any excess flour and fry them in the oil on both sides till they become golden color.Take the done paneer cubes to a plate and put aside.
2.Now add 2 spns of oil to a wok,when hot add the finely chopped garlic, sliced onions and fry them till they turn translucent,now add the ajinamoto,mix well and add the diced capsicum and fry till the capsicumis half done,we need the onions and capsicum to be crunchy so dont over cook them.
3.Add slit chilli,mix well.Now add the soya sauce,red chilli sauce,veniger,tomato ketchup,mix well and add 1/2 cup of water and when the mixture is boiling add a spoon of corn flour to 3 spns of water,mix into to a smooth paste with no lumps,salt and pepper powder to taste mix well and now the sauce thickens,at this time add the fried paneer,toss well such that paneer is well coated with the sauce.
4.Finally Sprinkle some green onion and serve it hot as a snack or as a side dish with Friedrice.

Special Thanks to my loving sister Navya,newly wedded couple.She made it for her lovely husband on her 4 month wedding day,clicked a pic and shared it with us,Seeing that pic my hubby asked me to make it for him,he is not a fan of paneer and mostly say NO to it,I was surprised and wondered that I got a chance to make it.
