Chilly Paneer and Spinach Noodles

I love chinese food but then the Indo- Chinese versions only :) Yet again yesterday I ended up making another fav of mine - Chilly Paneer and Spinach Noodles.

Chilly Paneer

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

Paneer - cut into cubes, rectangle or triangle
one cup of all vegetables - capsicum, onion, carrot, beans, cabbage (shred them)
ginger
garlic
green chily ( depends on how spicy you like it. I usually add 2 of them)
soya sauce
tomato sauce
ajinamotto
salt
pepper
oil
corn starch

Method:

Paneer has to be fried in oil. If you to health concsious then just aplly little oil on the paneer and microwave for 3 minutes. This way the Paneer is fried and you don't end up using too much oil for this. I usually like my paneer to be soft so I just use the microwave method. If you like the paneer to be crispy and want to eat this as a starter you can make a batter with corn starch and all purpose flour and little salt and dip in this batter and deep fry the paneer.

Heat the pan with oil and add chopped ginger, garlic and green chillies. Add the Onions and capsicum and saute them. Later on add the other vegetables and saute for sometime. Once you feel that the carrots are half cooked, add the soya sauce and tomato sauce and 1 cup water. Add salt, pepper and ajinamotto. (If you want to have it as a starte you would not add water and use only a teaspoon of soya sauce and tomato sauce)

Add the paneer and garnish with spring onions and shredded cabbage.

Spinach Noodles: (serves 2)

Ingredients:

1 packet of hakka noodles
Bunch of baby spinach
1 Onion
garlic
ginger
ajinamotto
salt
pepper
oil

Method:

Boil the noodles and drain them. Add a little oil after draining so that they don't stick to each other. Menawhile heat a pan with oil. Add ginger and garlic followed by onions and spinach. Saute them nicely. Add the noodles followed with salt, pepper and ajinamotto. Serve the spinach noodles with the chilly paneer :)

  1. Looks yum. Come to think of it, I haven't made Chilli Paneer for S. I might just make some variations and try this out to make it semi dry and spicier.
