Paneer Stir Fry | Paneer Stir Fry With Veggies | Indo-Chinese Recipe

Posted by

There are days when you just sit and wonder what to make for dinner and trust me, nothing troubles me more than planning menu for the next meal. 😛 Well, for that there are hundreds or thousands of Instant and quick recipes and, this Paneer stir fry is one of them. This is a quick, easy, colorful, and wholesome vegetarian meal.
This is the fastest and simplest Indo-Chinese dish I have prepared so far. This whole thing starts to finish, from preparing to serving dinner on the table will take half an hour. And when I  am cooking any Indo-Chinese dish obviously I want fried rice or noodles to pair it up. This time I ditched the but-so-obvious Hakka noddles and served Paneer Stir Fry with Basil-Pesto Noodles. Tastes Ah-mazing! 😀
I have shallow fried the paneer pieces to give a little crunch and if you want it to be crisper then shallow fry for few more minutes until it is golden brown. Add your favorite veggies to the stir fry and to make it more healthy add more green veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, sugar peas, bok choy, etc. Pair it up with vegetable fried rice, Schezwan fried rice,  Hakka noodles, steamed rice, or pasta OR just roll it up in a tortilla and eat as a Paneer Stir Fry Roll. 😀
