Paneer and Veggie Bundles in Hot Sauce

Chinese style hot gravy over bundled veggies not only looks elegant but taste delicious with fried rice. Every serving consists of paneer (cottage cheese) and veggies where your guests need not hunt for paneer in the gravy. I like to serve it in a shallow bowl so that picking each bundle is easy :)

Cut green beans, carrots, paneer/ cottage cheese, bell pepper lenght wise such that all are of the same length.  Blanch the veggies in hot water for 3-4 not overcook them. Saute paneer with very little oil to prevent it from crumbling in the gravy. Bundle paneer and veggies with greens of spring onion.

Keep bundles ready before making the sauce.

In a wok or a pan heat 1 tbsp. oil, add chopped ginger, garlic and onions.

Add Schezwan Sauce or chilli sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, ajinomoto and some salt (if needed). add a cup of water. Allow water to boil. Mix 1 tbsp. corn starch in 1/4 cup cold water. Add corn starch mixture to the boiling water 1 spoon at a time till desired thickness is reached.

Pour thickened gravy over bundled veggies. 
You could also add bundles veggies to the gravy and simmer for 4-5 minutes.

Sprinkle chopped greens and serve bundled veggies with 
Noodles or with Fried Rice! :)
