Paneer Chilly bites | Easy appetiser | Kids Snacks

Was paired with shree rao for this month's edition of Sshhh cooking challenge & the theme was Ramzan Iftar snacks. 

As always, the first preference for the kids happens to be paneer and I was delighted when my partner gave me flour and paneer as the two secret ingredients for this month

So without much Ado, we have spicy chilli paneer bites - apt for Ramzan as well as this windy monsoon weather we have here. It's sure to be a hit at any party. I scrambled to get photos before half of it was devoured by the paneer - loving kids.

So here's the recipe

Paneer cubes (frozen or fresh) - 1 cup
Cornflour - 3 tbsp
All purpose flour - 1 tsp
Rice flour - 1 tbsp
Oil - to pan fry
Turmeric - a pinch 
Salt and pepper to taste 

Seasoning - 
Oil - 1 tsp 
Bell Pepper or chillies - 1 medium
Onion - 1 medium (opt.)
Soya sauce - 1/2 tsp
Chilly sauce - 1/4 tsp

Marinate the paneer with the salt, flours and a tsp of oil. Keep aside for 10/15 mins 
Pan fry them with little oil till they are slightly crispy on the outside (of course, you can deep fry them too!) 
In a skillet, add the oil. Fry the onions a bit and add the bell pepper. Sauté till onions turn slightly translucent and bell peppers remain crunchy. Add the salt , sauces and the pan fried paneer. Give it a quick toss to coat the paneer with the masala and spices 

Serve immediately.
