How to make Paneer Sizzler Recipe In Chilli Garlic Sauce With Rice
To begin making the Paneer Sizzler Recipe In Chilli Garlic Sauce With Rice, we will first roast the vegetables
Heat a wide pan with oil and roast the paneer till it is golden brown on both sides. Remove from pan and keep aside. Next in the same pan add the carrots, cauliflower, onions, green beans, salt and pepper and saute for a few minutes on high till they are nearly done. At this stage add the tomatoes and corn and saute till the vegetables are done and well roasted. They vegetables should still have a bite to them and yet be cooked.
Once done turn off the heat and keep them aside.
Heat a pan over low flame and add garlic.
Saute for 1-2 minutes or till the garlic is light brown and immediately add the chopped vegetables like the onions, carrots, green beans, green chillis and saute for three to four minutes till the vegetables are cooked.
Once the vegetables are cooked, add the tomato puree, sugar, salt and allow the mixture to cook for 3-4 minutes over low flame.

As the sizzler pan is heating, arrange the roasted vegetables, and rice.
Heat the chilli garlic sauce and when the pan is screaming hot , pour it over the paneer and roasted vegetables.
