Paneer manchurian

paneer manchurian
   Paneer in any form is a favourite at home. Paneer is a very good source of protein, but also has good amount of fats in it. Thats when I  reduced the intake of paneer. Paneer is definitely nutritious and you can definitely include it in your diet and is suitable for everyone. Diabetic and patients with problem of high blood pressure and cholesterol can have in less amounts, maybe once a week because of its high fat content. Maybe if you make paneer at home , you can try using skimmed milk or low fat mik. An alternative to this is the use of tofu which according to me is not tasty as paneer , but is definitely a very healthy substitute and is very rich in protein and a cholesterol free food.
       So, one of these days when I was really craving for paneer , I made this  manchurian, the recipe very similar to gobi manchurian I posted long time ago. Just loved it, thats what I can say!!!

Ingredients-
Paneer- 100gm cut into large cubes
Onion- 1 chopped fine
Garlic-2 cloves chopped fine
Ginger- 1/2" chopped fine
Coriander leaves- a small bunch chopped fine
Tomato sauce- 1tbsp
Dark Soya sauce- 1tbsp
Salt to taste- if required
Oil- 1tsp

For Coating and frying 
Maida/plain flour- 1tbsp
Corn flour- 1tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Method-
    Mix the plain flour and corn flour along with salt. Add water and mix into a thick batter. Dip the paneer into the batter and fry them till it becomes golden brown. Keep aside.
    Add a teaspoon of oil in a pan. Add the chopped onions, ginger and garlic and saute for sometime. Now add the sauces. Mix well. Now add the fried paneer and mix well.Add salt if necessary.I did not add here. Garnish with coriander leaves.
   Serve hot with fried rice.
