Chilli Paneer

Chilli paneer-An Indian and chinese fusion of flavours are excitingly used in this paneer (Indian cheese) dish made from whole milk. Succulent pieces of paneer grilled to give it a crunch on biting, marinaded and stir fried in a wonderful spicy hot chilli sauce accompanied by onions and capsicums.

1 medium red onion (sliced thinly)
1 green capsicum (sliced in thin strips)
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon ginger paste

2 tablespoons soya sauce
2 tablespoons chilli sauce
2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon sundried tomato paste or tomato puree

1.Place the paneer in a bowl and drizzle 1 tablespoon oil.Toss and coat the paneer cubes in oil.
