Paneer Manchurian is a delicious Indo-Chinese dish made with paneer (Indian cottage cheese) that has been coated in a batter, fried until crispy, and then tossed in a spicy and tangy sauce. Here's a simple recipe to make Paneer Manchurian at home:

Ingredients:

  • 250g paneer, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 green chili, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper (capsicum), finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour mixed with 2 tablespoons water

Instructions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, add all-purpose flour, cornflour, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well and gradually add water to make a thick batter.
  2. Dip paneer cubes in the batter, coat well and deep fry them in hot oil until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, add chopped ginger, garlic, and green chili. Saute for a minute.
  4. Add chopped onions and capsicum and saute on high heat until they are slightly soft.
  5. Add tomato ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, black pepper powder, and water. Mix well and cook for a minute.
  6. Add cornflour mixture and cook until the sauce thickens.
  7. Add the fried paneer cubes to the sauce and mix well so that the paneer cubes are coated with the sauce.
  8. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the paneer is heated through and the sauce is evenly coated.
  9. Garnish with chopped spring onions and serve hot with rice or noodles.
