chilli paneer recipe | restaurant style paneer chilli dry | cheese chilli dry with step by step photo and video recipe. chilli based recipes are very common starters from the indo chinese cuisine. particularly the chilli chicken has a huge fan following because of its tender chicken pieces in chilli sauce. the same recipe has extended to vegetarian option with paneer cubes and paneer chilli dry is one such popular option.

i am a huge fan of paneer and indo chinese recipes and this recipe is a combination of both. i personally like the gravy version of it which i have already posted long back. whenever we plan for outdoor dining, we take the combination of fried rice with some chilli gravy with it. having said that, a dry version can also be shared as a side with the indo chinese rice dishes. the same chilli sauce can also be used with other ingredients like gobi, aloo. but the soft and moist paneer with chilli sauce makes it lethal. moreover, in this recipe, i have deep-fried the paneer cubes with a spiced batter, before tossing it with chilli sauce. this makes it more crispy, tasty and flavoured but some prefer adding paneer cubes as it is without deep frying.

furthermore, some easy and important tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect chilli paneer recipe. firstly, my preferred preference is to make chilli sauce as hot and sweet, and hence i use tomato sauce with chilli sauce. yet it can be made without any sweetness with just chilli sauce in it. secondly, the paneer has to be moist and tender for the best result. hence i would recommend using homemade paneer cubes or fresh paneer from the store. lastly, the flavour of chilli sauce can be increased or decreased with the use of green chillies in it. hence add it as per your preference.
