Coat the paneer cubes lightly in batter.

 

In a pan with high sides, heat up about 6-8 tablespoons of oil. Add the paneer cubes to the oil and fry till they are crisp on all sides. Else, you can also deep fry.

 

Remove on a paper towel and let them cool a bit

  

Meanwhile, to make the sauce, in the same pan add the chopped chilli, minced garlic and ginger. (If you deep fried the paneer, then you will have to remove most of the oil and leave about 1-2 tablespoons in there)

  

Add the onions & bell peppers (capsicum). Let them fry for about 1-2 minutes oruntil onions turn translucent.

Add the flour & cornflour mixture and mix well. Let it fry for a few seconds

 

Add soy sauce, sugar, chilli sauce, vinegar, salt & pepper and mix well.

 

Add a splash of water to the veggies and mix well. If you want a gravy, add more water and let it boil till you have a sauce

 

Add the fried paneer pieces to the mixture

 

Mix well without breaking up the paneer pieces. Make sure the sauce coats all sides of the paneer cubes. Taste and adjust for seasonings

Switch off the flame. Serve hot garnished with greens of the spring onion
