Chilli Paneer (Sweet And Sour Cottage Cheese)

This Chilli Paneer is another typical Indo-Chinese dish, the preparation is what I called vegetarian food made Non-veg way. It works well as starter, and a good side dish too!

300 gm paneer
1/2 Bell Pepper(Cut into pieces)
1/2 Onion (Shredded)
2  small green chilies (Slit and cut into 1 inch in length)Optional
2  stalks of spring onion (chopped while color parts, and for green parts, finely slice it for garnishing)
1 tsp Minced ginger
1 tsp Minced Garlic

For Dredging:(Blend together below ingredients)
1 tsp All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp Corn Starch
2 tsp Rice Flour
1 pinch of salt
1 pinch of pepper powder

For Sauce:(Mix together all below ingredients)
1 tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 tbsp Vinegar
2-3 tbsp Ketchup
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
4 tbsp Water

Some of the ingredients:

Cut paneer into cubes, dredge it with flour mixture, heat up 11/2- 2 inches oil in a cooking pan, fry paneer pieces until crunchy and golden in color. Drain excessive oil.

Prepare other ingredients accordingly.

In the same cooking pan, scoop out most of the oil, leave about 2 tbsp to fry ginger garlic and chopped spring onion (white part). Once it is fragrant, add shredded onion and green chili, stir well.

Pour in sauce mixture, bring to boil to slightly thickened, add paneer and pepper pieces, stir well until every piece coated with sauce.

Sprinkle some chopped spring onion (Green part) before serving.
