Paneer Manchurian is an Indo-Chinese dish made with paneer. Paneer is also known as Indian cottage cheese. It is used in most of the Indian veg dishes. Steps for making paneer or cottage cheese are simple. Paneer can be made easily at home too. In today’s Paneer Manchurian recipe, I have used store bought paneer as I did not have any home-made paneer. Today’s recipe is a dry or semi-gravy version of paneer Manchurian.
Paneer Manchurian is served as a starter in Indian restaurants. You can serve this Manchurian with veg fried rice or tofu fried rice or hakka noodles with egg. I have not added any food colour to this recipe. But if you wish it can be added.
