Step3 –ร‚ย ร‚ย In hot oil fry the marinated paneer and take them out separately. I like my paneer cubes to be crisp if you want them soft then fry for some less time.

  4. Great recipe – thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    I lived in Singapore for a time and the Indian restaurant nearby used to make lovely chili paneer. I’ve been looking for a similar recipe ever since I moved back to the UK and this one was great. I will definitely make it again……..even my kids loved it (they’re not too keen on very spicy food and it wasn’t as spicy as the one we used to have from the restaurant, but I thought it had a lot of nice flavour).

    Yum !

  5. Thanks for dropping by Shriya n for the appreciation.
    Loved you blog n saw many of your posts today.
