  • Heat oil large skillet over medium heat; fry paneer until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer paneer to a paper towel-lined plate, reserving oil in the skillet.

  • Combine garlic and ginger in the hot oil; add onion, green chile peppers, and bell pepper. Cook and stir until vegetables are golden brown, about 5 minutes.

  • Mix soy sauce, chile sauce, tomato sauce, sugar, salt, and remaining cornstarch into onion mixture, stirring in water if mixture is too thick. Add paneer; cook and stir until gravy is thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and garnish chili with cilantro and green onions.

Cook's Note:

Use tofu instead of paneer (cottage cheese) and go vegan!

You can make a thick batter of cornstarch using water and then coat paneer pieces with it, if desired.

One of our favorite restaurant dishes! I was so happy to stumble on this recipe. Also pleased that it came out as good as any we've at at our favorite Indian places. Definitely going in the rotation, thanks. Read More
