Paneer with Spicy Tomato Sauce Recipe

Paneer with Spicy Tomato Sauce recipe


This is a cheesy dish with a spicy kick. We use paneer, which is a type of cheese, and cook it in a sauce made with tomatoes, garlic, and spices. It's a little bit hot and very yummy. You can eat it with rice or bread.


500 g Paneer
2 Tbsp All-Purpose Flour
2 Tbsp Cornstarch
1 Tsp Ground Coriander
1/2 Tsp Turmeric
1 Tsp Paprika
6 Garlic Cloves
6 cm Knob Of Ginger
4 Green Finger Chillies
1 Large Onion
1 Red Bell Pepper
2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
80 ml Soy Sauce
150 g Tomato Paste
2 Tbsp Honey
Sunflower Oil for frying
1/4 cup Water
2 Tbsp Chopped Cilantro for garnish


Cut the paneer into 1-inch cubes and set aside.
Make a paste by finely grating the ginger, mincing the garlic, and chopping the green chillies. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, tomato paste, honey, apple cider vinegar, and water to create the sauce.
In another bowl, mix the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, ground coriander, turmeric, and paprika.
Heat sunflower oil in a pan over medium heat. Toss the paneer cubes in the flour mixture until well coated.
Fry the coated paneer cubes in the hot oil until golden brown on all sides, about 3-4 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.
In the same pan, reduce the amount of oil to about 2 tablespoons and sauté the ginger-garlic-chilli paste for 2 minutes until fragrant.
Add the chopped onion and red bell pepper to the pan and cook until they are soft, about 5 minutes.
Pour the prepared sauce into the pan with the vegetables and bring to a simmer.
Add the fried paneer to the sauce and cook for an additional 5 minutes, allowing the paneer to absorb the flavors.
Garnish with chopped cilantro before serving.
