Chilli Paneer


Ingredients
Paneer (INDIAN COTTAGE CHEESE, you can buy the readymade packs)
Corn Flour
Dark Soya Sauce
Chillies (red and green ones for colour; use chillies according to how hot you will like it)
Garlic Paste
Ginger Paste
Onion (medium) (for tempering)
1 medium Onion
Tri colour Bell Peppers (green, red and yellow)
Spring Onions
Oil for frying
Coriander
Salt
Cumin seeds

Preparation
First of all prepare the Paneer (you need to marinade it first)
• Cut the Paneer into cubes and place in container
• Cut two chillies into little pieces and add to the Paneer
• Put small amount of corn flour in to Paneer mixture, (just enough so that all Paneer pieces are coated with the flour, use your won judgement)
• Next add a pinch of salt
• Finally add some Soya sauce in the Paneer mixture (again, just enough so that all Paneer pieces are coated with the Soya sauce, use your won judgement)
• Leave to marinade for about one hour
• Once the paneer has been marinated, fry the paneer in oil until it is golden
• Leave to drain

Prepare the vegetables
• Make a ginger paste
• Make a garlic paste (use according to taste, I normally use half a garlic to one pack of paneer)
• Cut the onion is small pieces (for tempering)
• Cut the chillies roughly into pieces (quantity depends on how hot you like it)
• Cut the onions, and tri colour peppers into chunks
• Cut spring onions into small pieces (for garnishing)
• Finely chop the coriander (for garnishing)

Method
• Place a large wok on the stove with a little oil in the wok,
• Once the oil is hot, add cumin seeds and wait until they have popped (tempering), turn the heat down to the lowest point on the hob
• Add the garlic paste and the ginger paste, and stir (30 seconds or so), next add the finely chopped onions and stir,
• Once the onions have cooked add the chucky vegetable (the onions and the tri colour peppers) and the chillies, season the vegetable with salt and pepper (to taste) put the heat back on full and keep stirring for about five minutes,
• Next add the fried paneer to the pan and mix well
• Now add the Soya sauce (once again, use according to taste) mix well and keep stirring for about another two mintues or so (until the heat has penetrated through the paneer)
• Remove from hob and place the contents in a serving dish
• Now garnish with the chopped spring onions and coriander
• Serve hot immediately

Well written review but it sounds a bit complicated for me.

COOOEEE 20.05.2007 13:25

I do like the sound of your recipe but can't say I have ever seen Paneer even ready made in a supermarket but maybe it is because I have never looked for it. can you buy it from Tesco or Sainsburys etc? Fionaxx

cooking, whether it's one day a week or forever.
Western livestock-rearing and industrial
production of meat is not a model that can be
projected worldwideeven if it were desirable.
Moving towards a more vegetable-based diet is the
only sustainable and healthy way to feed the
world. Not everyone can or will give up eating
meat at once, but this exciting Small Planet
Vegetarian Cookbook will help the change. Some of
the best non-meat dishes come from Africa, Asia,
Latin America and the Middle East and we have
selected a variety of highlights. From the
tempting coconut milk rich dishes of South India,
to the warming bean and chili concoctions of South
America; from the fragrant soups and stir-fries of
Thailand to the delicate wat stews of Ethiopia,
this cookbook has intriguing tastes for every
palate. And to reflect the wealth of vegetarian
and non-dairy meals, the book is presented in
mezze (or spread of dishes) styledips that can
also accompany a main dish; crispy salads that you
may like to start a meal with; a main course that
could also be a starter and vice versa.... these
tasty, easy recipes offer freedom from a standard
menu approach and invite you to experiment with
exciting tastes, colors and flavors. The
extraordinary abundance of nutritious plant foods
gives great opportunities to conjure them into
delicious, planet-friendly meals. * Over 100
