Paneer Manchurian

This is a dish I make often but never think to blog – like we never end up seeing the local sites of our town, this one has been bypassed by other newer recipes that I’ve either concocted or learned! This is a house fav and gets demolished almost as soon as it is prepared!!! The last time I made it for a party and it was enjoyed by all – If you are looking for a quick, exotic and gourmet Indian-Chinese paneer recipe, look no further! I would like you to make this and give me some feedback! That would be the best compliment of all J

Serves: 8
INGREDIENTS:
2 lb. paneer (cubed)
1 tbsp. Maggi Hot and Sweet Sauce
1 tbsp. soy sauce

2 tsp. honey
1 tsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
¼ cup of: fresh onion chives, fresh garlic chives

  4. This looks really good … I have to get the courage one of these day to go beyond my simple chicken curry (which is made my way not in a traditional indian way, and try to make some indian food … I love it but usually rely on friends or restaurants for it. So thanks for this recipe – I always say what seems like simple everyday food to someone, turns out to be "just what I was looking for" to someone else. Thanks for visiting my site, you have a wonderful site that I'd like to join (for some reason your site takes very long to load … did you check size of photos?)

  35. Is Paneer like tofu? It looks like it but I'm not sure. It's new ingredient to me. But I love the seasonings you used – it would go with Ginger Jeera Rice (I love ginger!). Now I'm so hungry looking at these dish…and still not lunch time yet.
