Chilly Paneer

Since Chilly Paneer is a hot favorite among my collegaues when I bring it to lunch at work, I decided to let it show here

Chilly Paneer (Cottage Cheese in Chilly Garlic Sauce)

Oil- 6tbsp
Capsicum (diced)- 2
Onions (diced)-2
Whole Green chilly
Ginger-50gms(finely chopped)
Garlic-15 cloves(finely chopped)

For the sauce mixture:
Mix 2tbsp cornflour, 3tbsp Tomato Sauce, 2tbsp Green Chilly Sauce and 2tbsp Soya Sauce in a bowl

Cut the paneer into 1 inch cubes
Mix 2tbsp of cornflour, salt and pepper to sprinkle
Spread the paneer on a plate and sprinkle the cornflour over it.
Heat oil in a pan and deep fry the paneer pieces till golden
In the remaining oil saute the ginger, garlic,chilly, onion and capsicum
Add salt and pepper according to taste.
Add the sauce mixture to this and let it cook for 5 mins.
Add the paneer pieces, stirring slowly and cook till the paneer is evenly coated with the sauce.

I sometimes use ginger garlic paste instead of the chopped ginger garlic and it does give the flavor to it. If you do not like the ginger or garlic taste much, you can try this
