  • Salt -1 tsp
  • Ginger Garlic paste -1 tbsp
  • Corn flour -2 tbsp
  • Water -little to form as a paste

  1. Mix all the ingredients in Batch-1 except paneer.Now add the paneer/tofu to the mixture and toss well to coat the paneer/tofu pieces nicely.
  2. Fry the paneer/tofu pieces in oil and keep aside. (You can skip the above 2 steps if the paneer/tofu is very fresh. Frying enhances the flavour considerably.)
  3. Take a pan and heat some oil. Add cumin seeds, GG paste and saute for 1 minute.
  4. Add onions and saute a little.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients under batch-2 and saute for 3 minutes
  6. Now add the fried panneer/tofu to this mixture and saute for 2 mins.
  7. Yummy dry chilli panneer/tofu is ready.
