1/2tspcrushed black pepper
1/2cupall purpose flour/maida
For making the sauce
2tspchili garlic paste
1tbspcorn starchdissolved in 4 tbsp water
1tspblack pepperfreshly crushed
2tbspoil + for frying
Microwave paneer for a minute. Drain all the excess water and refrigerate for half an hour.
Mix ginger-garlic paste, salt, all-purpose flour, corn starch and pepper with water to make a smooth paste.
Dip the paneer pieces in this batter and fry in hot oil till golden brown. Set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add the spring onions. When then turn translucent, add the ginger garlic paste. Fry for a minute.
Add the chilli-garlic sauce, soy sauce, salt and sugar. Give it a stir
Toss in the capsicum and diced onion. Finally add the dissolved corn starch and pepper. Mix it well and turn off the flame.
After about 5 minutes when the sauce has cooled down a little and all the steam has stopped, add the fried paneer cubes and stir well to coat the paneer pieces. Serve it with fried rice.
Microwaving the paneer and refrigerating it helps to give really nice flavor and crispiness. Fry the paneer till really brown for that crunchiness Never add the paneer cubes when the sauce is hot as it will make the fried paneer soggy.
