Posted by Jenny in indian chinese.

Paneer Chilly is a spicy starter. Its fun to make it and experience the colors as we get preparing the Paneer Chilly.


200 gms Paneer (Cottage cheese)  I used Amul Paneer which comes frozen in cubes.
4 tbsps Cornflour or Maida
Vegatable Oil for deep frying
2 Onions
3-4 cloves Garlic 
3-4 Green chilli 
3 medium Capsicums
Salt to taste
2 tbsps Soy sauce
1/4 tsp Ajinomoto  (optional – i didnt use it)
1 tbsp Red Chilli sauce, Curry leaves and cilantro ( as per taste)
Cumin Seeds
Coriander powder
1 Egg (use of egg is optional for pure vegetairans)
Lime juice ( or vinegar)


1) Mix cornflour, egg, salt, garlic-ginger paste. Roll the paneer cubes in it. Deep fry it in medium heat until the edges turn brown. Drain the oil in paper tissues and keep aside

2) Cut capsicum and onion into thick slices.

3) Heat oil in a wok.  Add cummin seeds and let it splutter.

4) Add ginger-garlic paste. Mix curry leaves and the slit green chilly and stir them in the wok.

5) Add coriander powder. Form a gravy by adding water to the mixture

6) Add onions and capsicum to this.

7) Enrich the gravy with soy sauce, red chilly sauce and some lime juice.

8) To this mixure, add the paneer cubes that had been deep fried. Cook for 5 minutes until the gravy blends into the paneer.

Paneer chilly is ready to serve hot! 🙂
