Chilli Paneer

5 from 1 reviews

Chilli Paneer is Chinese-style Indian cottage cheese with onions, peppers, soya sauce, red chilli sauce, ketchup and corn flour. Simple, easy and so good!




  1. Shallow fry the paneer cubes in oil and take out in a plate.
  2. In the same oil, add the ginger-garlic, peppers, onions, green chilli and spring onions. Sauté for 5 minutes.
  3. Tip in the soya sauce, red chilli sauce, ketchup, salt and black pepper. Cook for 5 minutes or until the peppers are soft.
  4. Add the corn flour and cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Spoon out the paneer in a shallow dish and garnish with the remaining spring onions.
  7. Fry the paneer on medium heat so that it browns quickly. If you leave it on a slow flame, it will become hard and chewy later. Don’t over-brown it either.
  8. Don’t add too much corn flour or the whole thing will become a sticky mess.
  9. Omit the green chilli if you don’t fancy spice. The red chilli sauce will do the job!
