Chilli Paneer Dry Recipe | Restaurant Style Paneer Chilli | with step by step photos and video. A popular recipe from the Indian Chinese cuisine. There are many ways of making it. You can make it dry, semi dry or a gravy version. Today in this post I am sharing the dry version of this recipe.

The recipe is known for its chilli flavour with the creaminess of paneer and spice of Indo-Chinese sauces. An ideal party starter or an appetiser which can also be shared as a side dish with rice or noodles or any rotis.

The dry version of chilli paneer is served as a starter or appetizer snack. The gravy version is had with steamed rice or noodles.

Things to Know :

  1. Spicing:  You can add the amount of soy sauce, red chilli sauce, tomato sauce, green chillies, black pepper, & sugar as per your requirements or taste buds.
  2. Consistency: In this recipe, you can make the gravy slightly thick or having medium consistency. Just add slightly more water (about ¼ to ⅓) but do not add too much as then the flavors get diluted in the water. You can always check the seasonings and add more if required.
  3. Frying: You can deep fry or shallow fry or pan fry the paneer cubes. Moreover, do not fry the paneer too much as then they become dense and loose their softness.
