This chilli paneer recipe takes a little more time but it tastes very nice. Ingredients which I have used in this recipe are easily available in the market and also at our kitchen. So without wasting so much time lets start this recipe.
- Paneer – 500 gm ( cut into pieces)
- Onion – 4 large ( cut into cube size )
- Capsicum – 1 large ( cut into cube size )
( Take same amount of onion & capsicum ex-1 cup large size chopped onion and 1 cup same size chopped capsicum)
- Tomato – 1 no. (cut into small pieces without seeds)
- Cinnamon stick – a small piece
- Tomato sauce – 4 tsp
- Chilli sauce – 1 tsp
- Soya sauce – 1 tsp
- Salt to taste
- Oil -4 tsp
- Black paper powder – 1/2 tsp
- Corn flour – 3 tsp ( 1 tsp for gravy and 2 tsp for fry the paneer)
- Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
- Chilli paneer masala – 2 tsp
First we take a bowl, add paneer to it then add red chilli powder, cornflour and salt according to taste. Now mix all the ingredients by tossing them and immediately deep fry the paneer. The fried paneer should be light brown colour, don’t fry this very dark colour or hard. Now heat a pan add oil to it. After oil becomes heat add cinnamon stick, chopped onion and capsicum after that fry them very well. Here we keep the gas on medium flame. After that fry onion and capsicum till it becomes a little soft. When it becomes a little bit soft add soya sauce to it and mix very well. Adding soya sauce at this time gives a nice flavor.
After frying this for 2 minutes add tomato and salt ( remember that we add salt to the paneer while frying it ). Again fry this for 2-3 minutes or till the tomato becomes soft. Here we add tomato sauce and chilli sauce to it and mix all the ingredients very well. After that add fried paneer and mix well.
Now take a bowl add chilli paneer masala 2 tsp, cornflour 1 tsp and 1 cup water and mix very well. After that add this to the paneer and fry all these for 1-2 minutes. After it was completely done or the paneer becomes dry switch off the gas most importantly we add black paper powder at last and mix all the ingredients very well. Finally our chilli paneer is ready to serve. Serve this recipe with roti and paratha.
