to taste 
Red chilli powder

Cut paneer into thin strips or small triangular shapes. Cut the dry red chillies and heat the oil in a frying pan. Add the dry red chillies, the chopped green chillies, ginger and garlic paste and whole coriander seeds (crush them a little using a flat edged tool if you can, it will release the flavour) fry all together. When done add the chopped tomatoes and salt and the water let this mixture cook and simmer until the oil starts to separate from the tomatoes. Now add the red chilli powder, garam masala, and stir in. Add the capsicum and the paneer and mix well. Last add the ginger julienne and the chopped coriander and mix well. Serve hot.

Sometimes in restaurants they serve this dish as a sizzling starter, to do this heat the serving dish until hot and when serving the paneer sprinkle a little lemon juice on it, sizzle to your hearts content! I hope you enjoy this dish. Don't be hasty, it's very very tasty!
