  • (Personally i never use ajinomoto u can use it to enhances the flavor)

  Take cornflour in a bowl add paneer cubes to it and fry it in a wok. Keep that paneer aside. Now take another wok add oil to it let it be hot then add crushed garlic saute till golden. Add green chillies, onions, capsicum don't fry veggies too long it should be crunchy. Now add fried paneer to it add white pepper, salt, ajinomoto, chilli sauce and soya sauce mix all fast. Now add vegetable stock or water and diluted cornstarch mix well add vinegar garnish with spring onions and your paneer chilli is ready.


1)If you need paneer chilli gravy then add more vegetable stock and if you want paneer chilli dry then add less vegetable stock. 

2)Instead of vinegar you can use lemon juice.
