Spicy Chili Cheese

Aarsi's picture
We had friends drop in unexpectedly, so I created this using what I had on hand. Everyone loved it! My friend later served it as an appetizer.
  Paneer 1⁄2 Pound (Homemade Indian Cottage Cheese)
  Garam masala 1 Teaspoon
  Coriander powder 3 Teaspoon
  Red chili powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 2 Teaspoon
  Granulated sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Asafoetida 1 Pinch
  Tomato ketchup 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Preferably Heinz Brand)
  Freshly ground black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Red onion 1 , thinly sliced
  Roma tomato 1 , thinly sliced
  Green chili 1 , thinly sliced
  Green bell pepper 1 , thinly sliced
  Red bell pepper 1 , thinly sliced
  Asian hot sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Chili garlic sauce 1 Teaspoon (Garlic Hot Sauce, Asian Style)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon

Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Once heated, add asafetida, green chili, onions and salt. Saute this until the onions are slightly tender. Now add the bell peppers to this and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, chili powder, garam masala, coriander powder, black pepper and cover the saucepan with the lid. Turn the heat down to medium low and let this cook for 5 minutes. Now add the ketchup, siracha sauce and chili garlic sauce. Place the lid back and let it simmer for 5 minutes. You will see that a thick sauce is formed. Now add the sugar and mix this together. Now add the cubes of Paneer and gently mix it in to the sauce. Cover this with the lid and let it cook for another couple of minutes. Paneer is now ready to be served. I like to add half of the coriander leaves and mix it before serving and add the rest as a garnish.
Enjoy this with Naan, Roti and Loved ones!
