Whenever we go out to Indian Chinese restaurant, I usually order this dry chilli paneer or sesame honey chilli potatoes. Few weeks back I tried to make it at home and we both just loved it.

This tastes same as restaurant style. There is another gravy version of it. I will share that some time in future.

remove it to a plate and serve immediately. You can garnish with chopped green onion’s green part only. I didn’t have handy, so I skipped it.

Serving suggestion: Serve as a starter for your indo-chinese meal.
Notes:

  • Here I have shallow fried the paneer and made healthier version. But to get the best taste, deep fry them.
  • When you cut the veggies and paneer, make sure that all of them of same size. Cube of paneer and chunks of veggies should have same length and width so it looks good other than that there is no reason for doing it.
  • The onion and pepper should be on underdone side. For any indo-chinese recipe, veggies should be crunchy.
  • Mixing the sauces ahead of time in a bowl will make the job easier. If you measure and add sauces one by one in the recipe. It will take some time and meantime onions-peppers will get cooked and becomes soft. We don’t want that.
  • For variation and good looking Chilli Paneer, add colored bell pepper like red pepper or yellow pepper.
