Paneer Chilli Dry at Home| theflavours101.

Updated: May 26

Paneer chilli is one of the delicious Indo-Chinese recipes made with paneer cubes. chilli based recipes are very common starters from the Indo-Chinese cuisine, particularly the chilli chicken has a huge fan following because of its tender chicken pieces in chilli sauce. I am a huge fan of paneer and Indo-Chinese recipes. I have deep fried the paneer cubes with a spiced batter to give them a crisp covering before adding them to sweet, sour, and spicy sauces. There are many ways of making it, you can make it dry, semi-dry, or with gravy.



100 grams of fresh paneer.

1-2 diced capsicum and onions

Green onions

1-inch ginger finely chopped

3-4 cloves of garlic finely chopped.

3 tsp chilli sauce.

3 tsp soya sauce.

2 tsp all-purpose flour/ maida

5 tsp cornflour.

1 tsp salt.

1 tsp red chili powder.



STEP1: Take a bowl and add 2 tsp of all-purpose flour, 5 tsp cornflour, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp red chili powder, add 4-5 tsp water and mix them until totally combined.

STEP 2: Add the paneer cubes to the batter and mix it well. Let it sit for around 5 mins.

STEP3: After 5 mins take a pan and add oil to it, let the oil boil, and add the paneer cubes to it.

STEP4: Deep fry them until golden brown. TIP: Add a pinch of salt to the oil so that the paneer does not absorb a lot of oil.

STEP5: Take a pan and add 4 tsp of oil, 1 tsp finely chopped ginger, and garlic and saute them for about 2-3 mins.

STEP6: Add diced onions and capsicum to the pan add saute them for about 5-6 mins.

STEP7: Add 3 tsp chili sauce and 3 tsp soya sauce and mix them well.

STEP8: Add the fried paneer cubes and little green onions and mix them well.

STEP9: Serve it hot and garnish it with green onions.
