Method of making Dry Paneer Manchurian

  2. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Fry the marinated cheese pieces until golden.
  3. Spread the kitchen paper on a plate and take out the pieces of fried paneer on the plate.
Sauté Method:
  1. Take a wide mouth and thin bottom pot and heat 2 tbsp of oil in it on a medium flame. Add ginger paste and garlic paste and fry for 30 seconds.
  2. Add chopped green chili, chopped capsicum, and chopped onion and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add soy sauce, tomato ketchup, chili sauce, and salt. Add fried paneer pieces and green onions and mix well. Blend all the ingredients in a pan several times and cook on high heat for 1-2 minutes.

Suggestions and Variations:
  1. Chili sauce and soy sauce are important ingredients of any Manchurian recipe. Depending on your taste, you can increase or decrease the quantity of these two sauces.
  2. The prepared solution should neither be too thick nor too thin. The diluted solution will not cover the paneer well and the thick solution will not make the paneer crisp.
  3. If you live in a place where cheese is not available, then you can make it at home or use tofu instead of cheese.
