Chatpatta Paneer Yumm Yumm :-)

" Paneer " One of the favorites of all the Vegetarians and as my friends say - this is a substitute for Chicken in Vegetarian Dishes.(they are not wrong) :-P Chatpatta Paneer This came up when i was fasting on a lazy Sunday afternoon..thinking Wont a paneer taste good without Onion and Garlic??  Normally vrath (fasting) food are boring and sometimes tasteless.. Hence to bring in a bit of twist i tried something very simple and yet tasty. It made my day for sure, Paneer - we can always make a variety of dishes with different flavor, colors, styles... and so on. This dish is more like paneer tikka but without the tikka and onion, garlic. 
I loved it.. you can try and let me know how you feel about it?

Making this a healthier way lets add Olive Oil other than the normal refined Oil. To give it more taste i added loads of coriander leaves :)

Ingredients:

Paneer                        - 8 Pieces Cut in cubes
Red Chille Powder      - 1 Tbsp
Turmeric Powder        - 1 Tsp
Coriander Powder      - 1/2 Tsp
Tomatoes                    -  2 Large Grated
Cumin Seeds              - 1/2 Tsp 
Chat Masala               - 1 Tsp
Olive Oil                     - 2 Tsp
A pinch of Garam Masala
Salt to taste
Coriander Leaves       - Chopped finely

Method:

Fry the Paneer lightly and set them aside.
Heat the pan with Olive Oil, add cumin seeds and once it crackling add the grated tomatoes.
Cook it for about a mint and then add the rest of the masalas and cook in simmer for about 5- 8 mints.

Finally add the Paneer and mix them well. You can either them in Grill and cook them or like i did just served it on plate garnishing with coriander leaves.
