Paneer Dry with Nando’s Sauce

This is a recipe which I prepare quiet often when I am on the hustle and one of the easiest recipes to side with anything. Now, that is one good reason why I couldn’t post this recipe earlier. However, this time with my husbands help in clicking pictures I could post this recipe today.

For a thick gravy follow through my previous post on Paneer Butter Masala recipe. You can also find us on Facebook at Delicious Sweet Aroma page.

Paneer / Indian cottage cheese – 240 g

Garlic cloves – 2, finely chopped

Nando’s Peri -Peri sauce (mild) – 3 tbsp, depending on spice level

Oyster sauce – 1 tbsp

2. Add the sauces of Nando’s peri-peri, oyster sauce, chilli powder, coriander powder and vinegar. Mix and combine well.


3. Add soya sauce, sesame oil and toss in the paneer cubes with salt. Mix to coat it with the mixture. Do not over mix.

4. Lastly, add the green chilies and chopped paprika. I didn’t have the red paprika that day which I usually prefer adding to this dish for a intense flavor so I used green pepper.

Mix and let it cook for another 2 minutes.


Serve as sides with bread or rice.
