Paneer & Vegetable Stir Fry

Dish-2 from my oriental spread was paneer & vegetable stir fry. This was specially made for my vegetarian husband and he quiet loved it. :D

1 to 2 tbsp vegetable oil (for shallow frying the paneer) & add 1/2 tsp for the final dish
200 gms fresh paneer (cottage cheese). Alternately you can use Tofu.
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tsp grated ginger
2 onions cut into eights
8-10 florets of broccoli
1 bunch bok choy, trimmed into 1 1/2 inch lengths
1 bunch spinach, trimmed like the bok choy
1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced as the same length of the bok choy
1 yellow pepper, seeded and diced as the same length of the bok choy
180 gms baby corn halved
2 tablespoons vegetarian oyster (usually made with mushroom paste) sauce
1 tablespoon light soy sauce

In a wok over medium heat, warm the oil. Working in batches add the paneer and stir fry till golden on all sides. This is an optional step to preparing the dish. I shallow fry when we have friends coming over so that the paneer is taut when cooked. Remove the paneer and set aside on a paper towel so that the excess oils is drained.

Pour about 1/2 tsp oil into the wok and return to medium heat. Add garlic, ginger and onion. Stir fry till softened, about 2-3 minutes.

Add broccoli, baby corn and bell peppers and stir fry for another 3 minutes. Now add bok choy and spinach. Once the vegetables are tender crisp, about 4 minutes; add the paneer, oyster sauce and soy sauce. gently stir fry until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.

Serve hot with steamed rice.
