Chili Paneer (Indian cheese)

1 - 8 ounce  paneer cheese - cut in cubes

1  large sweet pepper and 1 hot  jalapeno pepper - julienne

3 carrots - julienne

1/2 small onion - chopped

1 scallion -sliced leaving some of the green part as well
1 tsp corn starch
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup water

1/8 cup oil for frying

blk pepper to taste

add oil in fry pan and heat on medium high heat, place paneer(in a single layer ) in fry pan and cook 3 minutes  on each side... It will splatter as it cooks so be careful . when turning use a spatula and scrape the bottom as it will stick . take the paneer  out and place on a paper towel 

in the same fry pan add in the peppers, carrots and onion and fry for 6 minutes , move veggies aside and add the corn starch and continue to cook another 2 minutes . add in the blk pepper, soy sauce and water and soon as it starts to evaporate add in the paneer and mix ( you need it to have a little sauce so if it gets to dry add more water and a little more soy sauce .
serve over basmati rice.

this dish will serve 2 people
