This is a recipe which I prepare quiet often when I am on the hustle and one of the easiest recipes to side with anything. Now, that is one good reason why I couldn’t post this recipe earlier. However, this time with my husbands help in clicking pictures I could post this recipe today.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves – 2
Paneer / Indian cottage cheese – 240 g
Garlic cloves – 2, finely chopped
Onion – 1 medium, roughly chopped
Vinegar – 1 tbsp
Tomato ketchup – 2 tbsp
Nando’s Peri -Peri sauce (mild) – 3 tbsp, depending on spice level
Oyster sauce – 1 tbsp
Soya sauce – 2 tbsp
Sesame sauce – 2 tsp
Green chilies – 1 small
Bell Peppers / Paprika ( red preferably) – 1, chopped with seeds removed
Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp
1. Heat a saucepan with oil on medium-high. Once hot add chopped garlic and fry for a minute until the raw smell goes away. Add chopped onions and fry till they turn translucent.
Add tomato ketchup.
2. Add the sauces of Nando’s peri-peri, oyster sauce, chilli powder, coriander powder and vinegar. Mix and combine well.
3. Add soya sauce, sesame oil and toss in the paneer cubes with salt. Mix to coat it with the mixture. Do not over mix.
Cover and cook for 4 – 6 minutes on medium until paneer is cooked.
4. Lastly, add the green chilies and chopped paprika. I didn’t have the red paprika that day which I usually prefer adding to this dish for a intense flavor so I used green pepper.
Mix and let it cook for another 2 minutes.
Serve as sides with bread or rice.
