    • 3 to 4 green chilies
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

    1. Preparation for Dry Chili Paneer
    2. Pat dry 200 to 250 grams paneer first, then slice the paneer in cubes or rectangles, keep aside in a bowl
    3. Now get on to chopping 3-4 green chilies, 1 small to medium onion and 1 small to medium capsicum. Make sure the onion and capsicum are cut into shapes of small cubes.
    4. Keep the chopped vegetables aside and start preparing for marination
    5. Marinating & Pan Frying Paneer
    6. Add 2 tablespoon corn starch, ¼ teaspoon red chili powder, ¼ teaspoon black pepper powder and salt to the diced paneer
    7. Mix gently without breaking the paneer or else you can shake the bowl or toss the paneer with the dry ingredients
    8. Now take a non-stick pan and add 2 tablespoons of oil to it
    9. When the oil is hot, put the marinaded paneer pieces in it and fry them till golden brown
    10. Keep flipping the pieces from time to time to avoid them from sticking to the bottom of the pan or getting burnt
    11. While the paneer is getting fried, use the leftover corn starch and spices from the same bowl in which we marinated the paneer
    12. This corn starch paste can be added to give a glaze to the sauce
    13. How to make sauce/gravy for the paneer:
    14. In another bowl, add 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon green chili sauce, 1 teaspoon sweet red chili sauce, ¼ teaspoon red chili powder and ¼ teaspoon black pepper, mix all the three sauces well with a spoon.
    15. Making Chili Paneer:
    16. In the same pan in which the paneer was earlier fried, add ginger, garlic and green chilies. Stir well
    17. Add diced onion and capsicum. You can also add celery at this step
    18. Cook on a medium flame to the point till the edges of the onions and capsicum get properly cooked or turn light golden brown
    19. Once the vegetables turn brown, add the previously prepared sauce mix and stir
    20. Now, add a little sugar and salt to the mix and stir. Make sure not to add too much salt to the mix as the sauce already contains soy sauce in it
    21. Now add the corn starch paste & stir properly. At this point you can check the taste in order to see if any ingredient is required
    22. Once the sauce has thickened add the pan-fried paneer and mix well making sure the paneer is well-coated with the sauce
    23. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then take the pan off the fire
