Paneer Manchurian

Paneer is a favorite in most households and so is Chinese.Both of them when combined turns into a fabulous dish. I have avoided the deep frying of Paneer and making it a maximum healthy dish. I hope you all will enjoy making and eating it.

Paneer - 250 gm
onions - 1 medium sized cubed
capsicum - 1 medium sized cubed
carrot - depends on the size i used half the carrot and cut in rounds
corn flour - 3 tbs
maida (all purpose flour) - 1 tbs
soya sauce - 3 tbs
red chilli sauce - 1 tbs
chopped green chilli - 1 tsp
chopped garlic - 1/2 tbs
chopped ginger - 1/2 tbs
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbs for marination
salt to taste
pepper powder to taste
roasted sesame seeds - 1/2 tbs
water ( depends how much gravy is needed )
Spring onions - green part 2 tbs for garnishing

Take the paneer in a bowl, add half of the cornflour, maida, ginger garlic paste, half of the soya sauce, pepper powder and salt mix it nicely by adding a bit of water. The above mixture should be nicely coated to the paneer. Refrigerate it for 15 to 20min.

After 15 min heat the Frying Pan by adding some oil. Add the paneer pieces to the oil separately try to fit all the pieces in one go. shallow fry them until they are turned slightly brown. remove them on an paper towel.

Manchurian Gravy
Take a cooking vessel add some oil, add the chopped ginger garlic and chilies then add the onions after a few minutes add the capsicum fry some sometime then add the soya sauce keep stirring keep the flame medium high while doing this procedure. Add the carrot lower the flame let it cook for some time then add water, red chilli sauce and salt. Let it boil. Take the cornflour add a bit of water to it and make a paste. Now add this to the boiling water. Stir it do not allow lumps to form.Prepare a saucy type gravy. Immediately add the fried paneer let it cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Garnish with roasted sesame seeds and spring onions.

P.S. using sesame oil while preparing chinese dishes adds a good flavour to the dish.
