Chilly Paneer

Paneer is the most famous and common South Asian Cheese..It is an unaged, acid-set, non-melting farmer cheese made by curdling heated milk with lemon juice or with vinegar..the paneer doesnt have salt and also they are very rich in protein..Paneer is completely lacto-vegetarian. Paneer is a source of protein for Hindu vegetarians.Coming to recipe, i prepared paneer cubes by shallow frying instead of making a batter with maida, cornflour and egg..i skipped all these steps and prepared simply by shallow frying the paneer cubes until they turns golden brown...As i skipped few steps to make this chilly paneer, this dish need hardly few minutes to prepare and they tastes prefect and delicious..Anything with paneer is my favourite and i just love this chilly paneer with hot steaming rice...we enjoyed this chilly paneer sterday for our lunch...



2cups Paneer cubes
1no Onion(chopped lengthwise)
5nos Garlic cloves (minced)
1cup Bellpepper pieces (red, green)
2tsp Chilly Sauce
2tsp Tomato sauce
2tsp Soya sauce
1tbsp Rice vinegar
1/2tsp Salt
2tbsp Sesame oil
2tbsp Chopped green onions

Heat few drops of sesame oil, add the paneer cubes and fry on both sides until they turns golden brown..add the chopped onions, garlic cloves, saute for few minutes..add immediately the bell pepper pieces, soya sauce, rice vinegar, salt, chilly sauce, tomato sauce and give a stir...cook in medium high flame until the bell peppers turns slightly tender...add now the shallow fried paneer cubes and give a stir...cook everything for 2 minutes and put off the stove..

Garnish the chilly paneer with chopped green onions..Serve hot!!!
