Chili Paneer

An Indo-Chinese dish that A made.  I for one always believed that paneer (cottage cheese ) should not be converted to any Chinese dish. But I think I was proved wrong with this one.

Ingredients:
Paneer - Cut the paneer into small blocks
For the Batter
 of 3-4 tbsp of cornflour , 1 egg (optional), ginger-garlic paste 1/4 tsp, salt, pepper

Capsicum - 1 - sliced
Spring onions 1- chop
Garlic - 4-5 chopped
Green chilies - 1 chopped finely
Soya sauce - 1 tsp
Chili-garlic sauce - 1/2 tsp
Tomato ketchup - 2 -3 tbsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Honey - 1/2 - 1 tsp
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Spring onion greens - garnish

Oil for deep frying and another 2-3 tbsp for the curry.

Make a batter with the ingredients mentioned with a little water to coating consistency
Dip paneer into the batter and deep fry on medium heat till golden brown.
Keep aside.

Take a wok
Heat oil.  Add the chopped shallots, garlic and green chilies.
Sauté
Followed by the sliced bell peppers
Once that begins to turn colour ( allow a little bit of crunch to remain if you like it that way ! )
Add the sauces, powders, vinegar and honey
Coat it well.  Keep awhile
Now, the deep fried paneer.
Throw in the spring onion greens.
A quick toss of the pan ( I cannot do this )

And serve.

( All the ingredients here can be varied according to taste and spice-tolerance)
