Chilli Paneer Recipe

Chilli Paneer

I am a huge fan of Paneer and I must say that Chilli Paneer is one of my favourite Chinese side dish. I mainly prepare this food with diced capsicum and onions rather than using spring onions because of not having in my kitchen. But it is suggested that spring onions make this dish as proper Chinese dish and give you the ultimate taste of Chilli Paneer.


  • For Frying the Paneer:
  • 250 grams Paneer/ Cottage cheese – cut into cubes
  • 2 Tbsp corn flour
