  • 500 Grams Paneer Cut into small cubes
  • 3 Tablespoon Cornflour
  • 1.5 Tablespoon All Purpose Flour/ Maida
  • 3 Bell Pepper Cut into cubes
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Chopped
  • 1/3 Teaspoon Black pepper powder
  • Salt As Per Taste
  • 3 Tablespoon Oil

  • 1/3 Tablespoon Red Chilli Souce
  • 1/2 Tablespoon White Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Ketchup
  • 2 Green chillies Slit
  • 1 Onion Cut into Cubes


  • Take a mixing bowl and Put 2 tablespoon of cornflour, plain flour, salt, pepper powder, and water and mix it to form a light batter without lumps.
  • Add the paneer cubes to this and mix well to coat. Now heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan and shallow fry the paneer pieces until they are light golden in colour. Drain them onto a kitchen towel to soak excess oil.
  • Now in the same pan, add one tablespoon oil and when it's warm add ginger and garlic paste. Saute until the raw smell goes off.
  • Now add cubed capsicum and onion, and cook for 3-4 mins until the they turn a bit soft and crunchy on same time. Add soy sauce, chilli sauce, vinegar, tomato ketchup, salt and black pepper. Mix it and sauté.
  • Take 1/4 cup of water and add 1 tablespoon of cornflour to it and make a thin paste. Gently pour this into the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes with sautéing in between.
  • Add the paneer pieces and sauté for 1 minute and then turn off the flame.
  • Garnish with slit chillies and serve hot.


  • The gravy thickens once cooled so don’t cook much after adding paneer.
  • You can adjust the sweetness and tanginess as per your taste by adjusting the amount of vinegar, chill sauce and ketchup.
