Steps to make Chilli Paneer Restaurant Style:
To make Chilly Paneer we cut the Paneer in cubes. Add a little Salt to it A little Chilly Powder and Cornflour, a lot of Cornflour We’ll Lightly mix it like this Make sure that the Cheese (Paneer) doesn’t break and the Cornflour, Chilli and Salt stick on it nicely Just in case You think that this is too dry You can splash some water on it There. Now Deep fry the Paneer inside the hot Oil. Just rotate the Oil a little So that they don’t stick to each other.
Gently fry them on medium to high heat, Because of the Cornflour, the outer shell of the Cheese becomes very crispy and crunchy, and when we toss them inside the sauce, the entire Cornflour soak up this sauce and becomes tender and juicy. And this is ready nicely crispy. We’ll take Paneer out there. Now Paneer is ready.
Now we will prepare the sauce. We take a pan and heat it nicely. On high heat, we’ll put some Oil in it till the pan heats up. We mix some red Chilli powder in the water. Oil is hot. First, to go to the Oil are Ginger And Garlic. A quick stir, this is not completely browned. Just a quick stir is all that is required. We’ll put in this diced Onions, diced Green Capsicum, and diced Red and Yellow Peppers. If you don’t have the red and yellow Capsicum, That’s fine too. Just the green pepper will work.
Please give it a nice stir. We put in this, Green Chilli Again, it’s optional, If you want less Chilli. You can avoid this. Now we’ll add this Chilli mixture, which we mixed in water. Add to it, Soya sauce, Tomato ketchup In this goes a pinch of Sugar. One quick boil and then a little dash of water. If you want to make dry Chilli Paneer Then this much water is fine. If you want extra sauce, then you can increase a little water.
To this, we add our fried Cheese, And we’ll toss it. To this add very little Vinegar, Now we add finely chopped Spring Onion. Add a little bit of water again so that all these flavours blend nicely and easily. We’ll take a small spoon of Cornflour. Add in it a little water. Mix it nicely, and pour it in this. By doing this, the sauce gets thick And coats the Paneer nicely add to this a little Salt. Best is to taste this dish while cooking because there is Salt in Soya sauce too. Add the salt only if it’s required. Now, This is done a little extra Spring Onion. Please turn off the gas and it’s time to plate — a little bit of garnish with Spring Onions. And our dish is ready.
Desi Chinese sure is yummy and Chilly Paneer or Chilli Chicken is everybody’s favourite. And it is no surprise that it is so easy to cook.
