Chilli Paneer

Chinese dishes always are a favorite in every household and mine is no different. I found this very easy and simple chilli paneer recipe and thought of giving it a try, while slightly altering the ingredients from the original recipe.

250 gms paneer (cottage cheese)
1 medium onion, diced (you can also use baby onions, halved)
1 bell pepper, diced
4-5 cherry tomatoes (or 1 medium tomato, diced)
A handful of coriander leaves, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
4-5 fresh spicy green/red chilli, chopped
1 tbsp tomato chilli sauce
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp white sesame seeds (optional, I skipped it)
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste

In an pan, heat the olive oil. Add the minced garlic and chillies. Fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the onions, cherry tomatoes, and bell pepper. Fry till the onions become translucent and the tomatoes and bell peppers become soft. Add the sauces and stir well. Tip in the paneer cubes, salt, coriander leaves, and oregano. Coat everything well in the sauce. Simmer and cover cook for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and serve. I served it with veg fried rice topped with some fresh fried onions.
