Chilly Mushroom Panner

Just prepared this Mushroom paneer without deep fry & wanted to prepare this dish in a wet manner so I tried this in my way.

Paneer (diced) - 12 nos
Button mushroom (medium) - 5 nos
Tomato paste - 1/2 tbs
Curry leaves - 1 stalk
Lemon - 1/2 slice
Soya sauce - 1.5 tsp
Capsicum (big) - 1 no
Oil - ( as mentioned in instruction)
Dania powder - 3/4tbs
Red chili powder(kashmiri) - 1/2tbs
Ginger & garlic paste - 1/2tsp
Salt - (as per taste)
Corn flour - 2 tsp
Ginger & garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Jeera - 1/2tsp
G.chilli( bombay) - 4 nos
Garlic - 2 pods
Onion - 1/2 cup
Oil - ( as mentioned in instruction)

Clean the mushroom in lemon juice, Add the ingredients in a bowl from table-2(Dania powder,Red chili powder,Ginger & garlic paste, Salt), mix it with 2T water,2tsp oil & salt and Keep it aside;Mix the ingredients from table 3(corn flour & ginger garlic paste) with pinch of salt, add paneer into the mixer, after 10 minutes fry it in kadai with 1 table spoon of oil and keep it aside. Add mushroom (chopped) to the rest of the mixture and repeat the process as did for paneer and keep it aside. Add 4 tsp of oil into pan; add the items from table 4 (jerra,g.chilli,garlic,onion)one by one. Sauté onion till it becomes translucent, add table 2 mixture stir it for 2minutes, add tomato paste stir it for some time & add soya sauce. Then add chopped mushroom, capsicum & curry leaves, finally add paneer pieces, toss very slowly to catch the masala. Before switching off the stove keep the flame high & stir it. After 30 seconds add lemon juice.
Mushroom doesn’t need to fry much as did for paneer. If you use ajinomoto it will enrich the taste. Instant sauce can be added if reqd. when adding panner into the oil the flame should be high, reduce it when frying. Those who require can add more oil than mentioned above .
