Few days back my husbands's one of old colleague and his family were coming for lunch and unfortunately, there were power cut for whole day. Normally, I don't use any readymade wet masalas but current was not there to grind any thing, I was totally confused what to do? My pre-planned lunch idea was completely flopped.

HA! HA! I re-planned and planned to cook Chinese food for them which do not require grinding masala. I made vegetable fried rice and chilli paneer for them along with a south Indian touch of curd rice.My idea was not effortless and every thing was perfect.I am just sharing the chilli paneer recipe today.



For making Batter:-
All purpose flour or Maida - 1 tbs
Cornflour- 1 TBS
Eatable orange color - 1/4 tsp
Ginger- garlic paste - 1 tsp (optional)
Salt - as per taste
Pepper powder - 1 tsp
Paneer- 200 gm
Oil - for deep frying

Onion - 2 in medium size

Capsicum - 1 in medium size
Green Chilli - 2 (cut in slit)
Freshly crushed pepper powder - 1 tsp
Ajinomotto - 1/4 tsp
Garlic - 2 pond ( finely chopped)
Ginger - 1 inch ( finely chopped)
Soya sauce - 1-2 tsp
Chilli sauce - 1-2 tsp
Tomato sauce - 1 tsp
Salt- as per taste
Oil - 2 tbs
Coriander or spring onion - for garnish

  • Cut paneer in small square size.
  • Make a batter of maida and corn flour with salt, orange color, pepper powder, ginger garlic paste 
  • The batter should be like dosa batter which gets easily coated to paneer.
  • Now heat oil in a pan.
  • Deep fry paneer in medium heat till it is cooked and remove in kitchen towel to soak extra oil if any.
  • Cut onion and capsicum in small cubes.
  • Now heat 2 tbs oil in a pan and add chopped ginger garlic in it.
  • Now add cut onion and capsicum with green chilli.
  • Fry them in high flame.
  • Add all the sauce with salt, black pepper and ajinomotto.
  • Fry them for 5 minutes in high flame
  • Now just put the fried cubes of paneer in this and mix well.
  • Cook in high flame for another 5 minutes.
  • Switch off flame garnish with coriander or spring onion.
  • Serve hot.
