In Chinese Starters Tangy delights Yin Yang

Honey Paneer with Sesame Seeds & Winners Announced

I was totally in love with the recipe when I saw it on Neha's blog. I loved the amalgamation of sauces with honey and paneer. I felt the urge to make the moment I saw it last week but had to wait for the provisions to come in and to venture this. I loved it to the core and this is the best Chinese dish I have ever tasted and I surely owe it to you Neha.

If you are using frozen paneer allow it to come to room temperature or put them in boiling water for about 3 mins and make them soft.  Make a thin paste using ingredients mentioned under Paneer coating and add paneer pieces to this mixture. Ensure that paneer pieces are coated well. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry these coated paneer pieces until golden brown in color.
Remove them and place them onto a kitchen napkin to squeeze excess oil. In a pan, add 2 tbsps of  sesame seeds oil, add Ginger garlic pieces and fry until the pungent smell subsides. Now add onion, tomato and capsicum pieces and saute for about 1 min on high flame. Add remaining sauces except honey, peanuts and mix all the ingredients well. Add sesame seeds at this point. Add corn flour paste and keep stirring this mixture to avoid lumps.
Once you attain saucy consistency, add paneer pieces and give a quick stir.  Switch off the flame and after 5-10 mins, add honey. Ensure all the ingredients are combined well.

Garnish with Sesame seeds and serve.

Chef Says:
1) My mom says that you shouldn't add honey directly when you are cooking. So I was not sure of adding honey directly with sauces thought the original recipe calls for the same. I added it later. But both the ways it wouldn't effect the taste.
2) Do not allow this dish to stand for a longer time once prepared, paneer turned rubbery.
3) I have added chilly flakes and oregano to my cornflour paste, that's purely optional.
