Stir fried veggies is the easiest recipes I guess. I usually make this when I’m not in a mood to cook. Just add bit oil, add together the veggies, spices & salt to taste…..What a cushy job!

Most of the Chinese recipes are stir fried such as stir fried string beans, broccoli, mushrooms, eggplants, noodles etc. I love them even if they are bland in taste, but spice is essential in whatever I cook.  This time my choice was button mushrooms and paneer. Both goes well for stir fried & because of its soft texture, it hardly takes time to cook….. 

The recipe goes this way 

  • Mushrooms – a packet which consist of 12 to 15 mushrooms
  • Paneer- 10 to 15 cubes
  • Tomatoes- 1 big diced
  • Green chilies – 4 to 5
  • Coriander leaves to garnish
  • Jeera to splutter
  • Red chilly powder – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder- ½ tsp
  • Tandoori masala – 1 tsp
  • Oil as required
  • Salt as required 

Method 

  • Heat oil in a pan & add jeera to splutter

  • Add sliced mushrooms and paneer to it

  • Toss it for a while till the paneer turns light brownish. Do not constantly stir with spatula as there is a tendency to break up the paneer cubes.

  • Add all the spice powders to it & toss for another 2 minutes.

  • Add diced tomatoes and green chilies at this stage.

  • Simmer it for a while till the tomatoes are soft & well bended with mushrooms.

  • The whole cooking is done on slow to medium flame.

As Tandoori masala is added it gives a grilled taste.
