chilli paneer

This is hearty and spicy dish that I like to make when I have a paneer craving! It’s super easy and can be made as mild or spicy as you would like by varying the amount of green chillies.



one bock of paneer cubed and shallow fried

one plum tomato chopped

one red onion chopped

1 tbsp ginger garlic paste

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp garam masala

2-3 green chillies chopped

1 tbsp mixed pickle (I used mixed mango pickle)

salt & pepper to taste


Saute all the spices in oil along with onions and ginger garlic paste. You can add a splash of water if needed.

Then add the tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the pickle and cook for an additional minute.

Add the paneer cubes and 1/2 cup of water.

Cook for 2- 3 minutes until water begins to reduce.

Serve hot with naan, roti or rice!
