Quick Chilli Paneer Stir Fry

Quick Chilli Paneer Stir Fry

This is a lovely starter which tastes delicious. It is very quick to make and has similar flavours to chilli paneer but this dish is not as saucy as chilli paneer. It has a slight sweetness which goes very well with the garlic and chilli.

Serves 4

Ingredients

  1. 2 Blocks Paneer- Approx 10oz in a Block
  2. 2tbsp Oil
  3. 1 Red Pepper/Capsicum- Sliced quiet thick
  4. 1 Green Pepper/Capsicum- Sliced quite thick
  5. 8 Spring Onion-Chopped
  6. 3 Cloves Garlic- Crushed
  7. 3 Green Chillies- Sliced Long ways
  8. 2tbsp Soy Sauce
  9. 1tbsp Chilli Sauce
  10. 2tsp Honey

 Method

Cut the paneer into cubes. Take a wide non stick wok and the oil and paneer. On a high heat start to stir fry the paneer gently stirring. Add the soy sauce, chilli sauce and honey and stir fry for a few minutes. Take the paneer out onto a plate and add all the other ingredients into the wok. Again on high heat cook the vegetables until semi soft. Do not overcook or else the dish will not taste good. The peppers must have a bite to them. Add the paneer to the vegetables and gently mix. Turn the heat off. Serve hot. Yummy!

Great Mexican Vegetarian Party Starter

Great Mexican Vegetarian Party Starter

This is such a quick and easy starter to do and has a great taste. The refried beans are very versatile and can be used in many different dishes. I have chosen to make it as a starter. Again you can make the beans the night before and therefore giving you time to sort other things out on the day of your party!

Makes 10-12 Individual Starters

Ingredients for Refried Beans

  1. 1 Can Kidney Beans/400g- Washed and Drained
  2. 1tbsp Olive Oil
  3. 2 Cloves Garlic
  4. 1tsp Ginger
  5. 3tbsp Tomato Ketchup
  6. 1 Ripe Large Tomato
  7. Salt to taste
  8. Freshly Grounded Pepper
  9. Chilli Flakes to make it Spicy- Optional
  10. 1 Pack Taco Shells- Cooke both sides until golden in colour- You may not need them all

For the Topping

  1. 1 Iceberg Lettuce- Finely Shredded- Again you may not need all
  2. 2-3 Tomatoes- Deseeded and Finely Chopped
  3. 5 Spring Onions- Finely Chopped
  4. 1 Red Onion- Finely Chopped
  5. Grated Cheese

Guacamole

Method

In a food processor, grind the beans, tomato, garlic and ginger. Grind until semi smooth. In a pan heat the oil and add the bean mixture. Stir well and add the rest of the ingredients apart from the taco shells. Heat until the mixture starts to bubble. Check for salt. Leave aside.

Break the tacos in large chunks. Take a spoon of beans and layer the bottom of your serving bowl; it is nicer if you have small bowls as you want to serve it like a canapé. Sprinkle some lettuce, tomatoes, spring onions, red onions and finally some cheese. Take the taco pieces and dot them on the side. Add a small dollop of guacamole on the side and its ready to serve! Yummy, Happy Partying!!
