BM #119 Week 3 Day 3 -

To finish off this week's series of Paneer dishes, here is a super tasty and easy starter perfect for everyday meals or a party.

I have used the Air Fryer to make the paneer cubes crispy but traditionally the paneer cubes are deep fried.

The choice of spices is a matter of preference. I was in a hurry to whip up this dish and so used the spices which were handy. I wanted to use ginger-garlic paste but shall have to try the combination next time.

I shall try to update the pictures as soon as I can.

Ingredients - 

*Paneer cubes 1 cup

Cornstarch 1.5 Tbsp

Salt, Red Chili Powder, Garlic powder, Onion powder, Amchur Powder, Paprika, Garam Masala 

Oil 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp

Onions cubed handful

Colored Bell Peppers 

Lemon Juice as needed

* I thawed the frozen paneer cubes and so the moist paneer cubes were perfect to absorb the cornstarch

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add cornstarch and all the spices. Mix well and toss in the paneer cubes. Make sure the cornstarch mixture is well coated on all paneer cubes. Spray oil and toss. Set aside for 15-20 minutes. 

Preheat the air fryer at 350 for 2 minutes 

Arrange all the paneer cubes in a single layer in the air fryer basket. 

Bake for 6 minutes, remove, toss and bake for 2 more minutes. Check if they are crispy as per preference and transfer into a serving plate. 

In a heated pan, add oil and sauté onions and colored peppers. While they are still crisp, toss in the air fried paneer. 

Sprinkle salt, red chili powder and lemon juice. Remove from heat and enjoy.

  1. Paneer 65 sounds like a perfect dish for a bite, I love Gobhi 65, so paneer obviously would be a level higher! Super Duper!
