chilli paneer dinner
I'm supposed to be posting recipes on my cooking blog, but I've finally decided that it's easier to put everything on one blog, rather than have too many! I started out quite enthusiastically and made different blogs for different topics - art, cooking, childhood, homes etc. but it's too difficult to maintain, so one by one they've dropped by the wayside leaving only this one and my own art blog. So here goes, tonight's dinner: chilli paneer.
1 pkt paneer
1 green and 1 yellow pepper (capsicum)
2 green chillies
dry mango powder
sweet chilli sauce
Chop the paneer into cubes and shallow fry. Remove from pan and place in a bowl of cold water. Fry cumin seeds, onion, ginger, garlic and green chilli until soft, add all other spices, salt and peppers, stir fry until peppers begin to soften. Remove paneer from water and add back into pan. Add tomatoes and sweet chilli sauce, turn the heat down and let simmer for a few minutes, until tomatoes are cooked. Throw on chopped fresh coriander before serving.
I made some chapatis to go with it (see photos) but you can also have it with rice. My son took some lovely photos while I cooked the chapatis!
