Paneer Chilli Recipe | Chinese Chilly Paneer (Dry & Gravy options) Indians lovetheir中国菜。

I bold-ed"their"因为你在印度吃的中餐和你在中国吃的正宗中餐很不一样……有人告诉我。

But that really is not my problem. I'm not really hung up on the fact that Indians make their Chinese food totally wrong.总有一天,I'd truly love to have some real vegetarian Chinese Food.但是当你把中国民族风味外推到Cottage Cheese,you are pretty much making a firecracker dish!And I'm quite happy munching on these not-so-authentic yet so-damn-delicious Paneer Chilli!!

帕内尔辣椒是印度人喜爱的众多融合式中印菜谱之一。This was originally served as Chilly Chicken.But of course,the vegetarians decided to modify the recipe and Paneer (in India) is a go-to ingredient for almost any kind of meat-substitute!Basically,you crisp up paneer cubes and serve along with a Chinese flavored sauce.Real easy – but only if you read the recipe carefully and understand the steps!You can do that,can't you?🙂

Note:这可能是一个冗长的食谱,but it takes only 30 minutes to prepare if you are organized.

Instructions
Preparing the Paneer (Cottage Cheese)
  1. Cut the paneer pieces into cubes.You can cut them in any size you like.Preferably not too big or small.188bet金宝搏下载About 1 inch cubes should be perfect.
  2. Place them on a paper towel to make sure all the moisture is absorbed.然后用面粉把它们卷起来保持干燥。
  3. Meanwhile,heat 6-8 tablespoons of Oil on a pan with high sides for Shallow Frying.Or fill the pan with oil for deep frying if you wish to.
  4. Mix ingredients mentioned under"Batter"(flour,玉米淀粉,salt,胡椒粉,soy sauce,醋和水)形成光滑的薄面糊
  5. 在平底锅的方块上轻轻地涂上面糊。
  6. Add the paneer cubes to the oil and fry till they are crisp on all sides.Else,you can also deep fry till light golden brown.
  7. Remove on a paper towel and let them cool a bit
For the Sauce
  1. In the same pan add the chopped chilli,minced garlic and ginger and fry for 10 seconds.(If you deep fried the paneer,then remove most of the oil and leave 188bet金宝搏下载about 1-2 tablespoons in there)
  2. 加入洋葱和甜椒(辣椒)。让它们煎1-2分钟或直到洋葱变成半188bet金宝搏下载透明状。
  3. Add 1 teaspoon of all purpose flour and cornstarch each and mix well.Let it fry for a few seconds until the flour smell goes away
  4. Add soy sauce,sugar,chilli sauce,番茄酱,vinegar,salt & pepper and mix well.(如果你愿意,you could also add some schezwan sauce here)
  5. Add a splash of water to the veggies and mix well.如果你想要肉汁,add more water and let it boil till you have a sauce.
  6. Add the fried paneer pieces to the mixture.Mix well without breaking up the paneer pieces.Make sure the sauce coats all sides of the paneer cubes.品尝和调整调味品
  7. Switch off the flame.Serve hot garnished with greens of the spring onion
Notes
  1. Preferably use fresh,store bought Paneer from an Indian store for this recipe.如果你用的是干酪,it may be salted.所以在做面糊的时候不要加盐,相应地调整酱汁中的盐量。
  2. 你可以选择跳过面糊的制作过程,直接在酱汁中加入平底锅的方块。Add raw paneer cubes to the mixture and let it cook with the sauce for 188bet金宝搏下载about 5-6 minutes for flavors to seep into the paneer.这也是一个更健康的选择。
  3. If you do not have cornstarch,你可以用万能面粉代替(反之亦然)
  4. If you do not want to make the dish so spicy,simply add the whole green chili split at the middle and seeds removed.That way,you can spot the chilli and remove it.Depending on the type of green chilli you use,the spiciness may vary
  5. If you want to make dry Chilly paneer to be served as appetizer / snack on a plate with fork / toothpicks,add only 188bet金宝搏下载about ⅕ cup of water / vegetable stock and let that boil to form a thick sauce just enough to coat the paneer.If you want to make Paneer chilli gravy to be served as side dish,go ahead and add ½ cup or ¾ cup of water / veg stock and let that boil until you have a thick gravy.你仍然可以品尝和调整调味料。

You can also use homemade paneer对于这个配方,but I've always gotten best results from fresh 商店购买的平底锅.You can also make this dish Vegan by substituting Paneer (Cottage Cheese) with 嫩豆腐.
