6-7 tbsps spring onion whites
3-4 tbsps spring onion greens
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp chopped ginger
2 tsp soya sauce
2 tsps vinegar
1 tbsp corn flour + 5 tbsps water
1/2 tbsp sugar
2 green capsicums, thin slices
1 1/2 tbsps tomato sauce
1 tsp red chilli paste (soak 3 or 4 dry chillis in hot water for 10 mts, cool, grind to a paste, and saute paste in a tsp of oil for 2 mts)
salt to taste
1/2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves (optional)
2 tbsps oil
For marinade: (marinate paneer with below ingredients for 10 mts)
large pinch black pepper pwd
salt to taste
1/2 tsp chopped ginger
1/2 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp corn flour + 5 tbsps water

1 Heat oil in a flat non-stick pan, place the thinly coated paneer pieces next to one another and shallow fry till brown. Flip over and let it brown the other side. Remove and keep aside.
2 Heat a heavy bottomed vessel, pour the left over shallow fried oil (if necessary add 1-2 tsps more oil), add the chopped ginger and garlic and saute on high flame for about 30 secs. Add the chopped spring onion whites and saute for 2 mts. Add sliced capsicum and stir fry on high flame for 2 mts. Add red chilli paste, tomato paste, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and combine. Add the sauteed paneer and toss for a mt on high flame. Add 5 tbsps of water and adjust salt if necessary.
3 Add the cornflour water and combine on high flame, tossing the contents, for 2 mts. You will find that it becomes thick due to cornflour.
4 Add the chopped spring onion greens and combine. Garnish with more spring onion greens. Serve hot as a starter/appetizer.
Alternately, you can deep fry the marinated paneer till golden brown and follow rest of the procedure.
