I simply detest eating alone. For almost 2 years after coming to Bahrain I had to go through the torture of lonely lunches ( I usually ate after feeding my little one and putting her to sleep and my husband always took packed lunch)
But the last 6 months had been different with my husband coming home for lunch as he had to drop our daughter back home after play school. :)
Nevertheless, I still do have to endure days of lonely lunch once in a while, which I usually survive with a sandwich or mostly breakf



Paneer (cottage cheese) - 5-6 cubes
Onion - 1 medium sliced
Chillies - 2 slit into half
Capsicum (bell pepper) - half sliced
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp (as per need)
Soya Sauce - 1/2 tsp
Chilly sauce - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a few (optional)
Garlic - 1 pod crushed
Salt as per need
Oil - 2 tbsp


Step 1

Heat a teaspoon of oil in a pan and grill the paneer cubes, turning them over as you do, till the cubes turn a golden brown. Keep these aside.

Step 2

Heat around 1 Tbsp of oil, add the crushed garlic and saute till the raw smell goes off.
Now add the sliced onion and saute till translucent.
Follow this up with the chillies and sliced bell pepper and curry leaves (if using) and stir for a min.

Now add chilly powder and continue sauteing for 2 mins. Tip in the sauces, and salt and mix well.

To this add the grilled paneer cubes and mix well. Stir till the curry is crisp and dry.

You may serve this with any accompaniment of your choice.

Step 3

Note: To keep your paneer soft, drop the fried paneer cubes directly into a cup of ice-water with a pinch of salt in it. Leave it there until usage time.
