Thanks to the surprise rainfall on Monday morning, the pleasant shower was welcome to the Spring season. During such drizzling's I prefer to cook hot and spicy items and today its Chilli Paneer's turn with a sip of hot coffee.Coming to the recipe...

  • 200 gm paneer cut into small pieces
  • 1 capsicum cut into long pieces
  • 1 big white onion cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp onion greens
  • 1 inch ginger - cut in long thin pieces
  • 4 garlic pods cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp White Vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dark soya sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli paste(adjust as per spicy levels)(I used red chillis not the dried ones)
  • 2 tsp tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • Oil for frying
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of green coriander chopped finely
