Like paneer? This chilli paneer is a must!
I make this chilli paneer all the time. Paneer is a great substitute for meat and can be used in so many different dishes.
This is a lip smacking way to serve paneer. The chilli paneer sauce is sweet, savoury and just as spicy as you like it. Use your favourite hot sauce for this one. You can use less if you really don’t like your sauces spicy hot.
I like to roll the seared, soft paneer with the fried veggies and sauce into hot, homemade stovetop naans. It’s so good. Of course it’s also good served as a saucy curry over plain white rice.
As you will see in the recipe, the sauce is really easy to prepare. You could add paneer right out of the pack but I like to sear mind for more flavour and that crispy textures.
Make this recipe your own
As with all of my recipes you can taylor this chilli paneer to your own tastes. Use fewer chillies if you like a milder sauce. I like to brown the paneer in a frying pan but if you are short of time simply add it straight from the packet.
