1. Keep everything ready before you start. Marinate paneer with ingredients numbered 3. Set aside for 5 minutes. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.  Add paneer and cook for 30 seconds until the bottom side of the paneer turns golden. Flip over and cook for 30 seconds. Do not over fry, it will turn hard. Drain on a paper towel and set aside.

2. In the same pan, add 2 tsp oil and heat at medium-high. Add onion, garlic, bell pepper and stir-fry for a minute. Next add soy sauce, green chilly sauce and vinegar. Mix well. Add cooked rice. Mix well and stir-fry for 3 – 4 minutes adding the fried paneer pieces, chopped celery and spring onion. Taste-check for salt. Finally add 2 tsp butter, chopped spring onion and a pinch of pepper powder. Stir-fry for a minute. Serve hot with gobi manchurian, vegetable Manchurian, chilli mushroom, chilli chicken etc.
