Onion: 2 medium sized (cut lengthwise into four parts and layers peeled)
green chilly: 1 chopped
Garlic flakes: 5-6 chopped

pepper: 1/2 tspn
Vinegar: 1 tbpn
soya sauce: 2-3 tspn (depending on the colour desired)
tomato sauce: 4 tbspn
aginomoto: 1/4 tspn
sugar: 1/2 tspn
Oil and salt

Mix maida, salt and red chilly powder. Add 5-6  tbspn water to make batter . Marinate paneer pieces in this batter for 30 minutes. Deep fry coated paneer pieces till golden brown.

Heat 3-4 tbspn oil. Add green chillies, garlic and saute them for 1 minute. Add capsicum and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add Onion and again cook till both capsicum and onion are crunchy. 
Add salt, sugar, aginomoto and pepper and stir. Add vinegar, soya sauce, tomato sauce and mix well. Add 1/2 cup water and boil. Add the fried paneer pieces, mix them all well, cook on heat for 1-2 minutes.
Serve hot.
( To taste it a little different try this: In the end, slightly shift the pan from fire, take some mix on jhara (laddle with pores), burn it over fire for 7-8 seconds. Mix it back. Take another scoop and repeat this 4-5 times. This gives a different flavour and smells good. Serve immediately.)
