Stir Fry Paneer in Peanut Sauce

The second recipe in the Thai series on the blog is Stir Fry Paneer in Peanut Sauce.
It hardly takes 10-15 mins to prepare this appetiser and it goes well with a soup / salad (Thai Cabbage Salad)

Paneer / Cottage Cheese is a commonly used protein in vegetarian cooking. In Thai cooking, Tofu is generally used and less of Paneer, so you can substitute the ingredients as per your wish. The texture of this appetiser is crunchy and has a sweet and spicy taste. Serve it as little bites with Lettuce greens or as a Yoghurt Dip. This recipe can be made oil-free as Peanuts loose their own oil when cooked.
