A few weeks ago, my daughter tried this recipe, sourcing it from an Instagram feed. We have tried this at home twice and it’s a super hit recipe.

Chilli paneer dry recipe I have posted in Jeyashris kitchen a few years back, which is a super hit recipe. Usually, we make chilli paneer by coating the paneer in flour and deep fry it. This version of sweet chilli paneer doesn’t involve deep-frying the paneer cubes.

This Paneer dish can be served as a starter or as an accompaniment for fried rice or Hakka noodles. As the name says sweet chilli paneer, the dish is not sweet. The addition of orange juice and sugar balances the spiciness and enhances the taste. Try this super hit paneer recipe at home and let us know how it turned out.
