While on a tired day, you might settle for having Fried Rice with chilli-garlic sauce or tomato ketchup, on a more leisurely day you would surely want to have a more exciting accompaniment, like this spicy Paneer in Manchurian Sauce!

Paneer, a few other commonly available ingredients, and a few minutes, is all it takes to make this tongue-tickling treat.

You are sure to enjoy the contrast between the spicy, tangy, totally Chinese sauce and the soft, mellow, paneer, which together become a truly memorable treat.

The manchurian sauce is a nice tangy sauce and can go with any Chinese vegetable.
