Masala Paneer for Kids

We had invited our friends for lunch over the weekend. They have 2 kids, both under 5 years of age. Though most of the dishes I had prepared were mild enough for the kids to eat, I still thought of making masala paneer for them. This way, even if they don't feel like seating at one place and eating the whole meal, they can run around the house, and grab a bite of the paneer.
This dish is very easy to make, and usually a hit with kids who like paneer. You can change the spices used in the recipe to your kids liking.

1/2 lb Paneer, Cut into 1 Inch Thick and 2 Inch Long Pieces,
1/4 Cup Oil,
Salt to Taste,
1/2 Teaspoon Paprika,
1/4 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder,
1/4 Teaspoon Amchur Powder (Dried Mango Powder),

Heat oil in a pan. Once hot, add the paneer cubes and shallow fry it until all sides are golden brown, stirring occasionally.
Take off the heat, and transfer to a straining basket. This will get rid of all the additional oil. Immediacies sprinkle the salt, turmeric, paprika and amchur powder. Mix well. Transfer to a serving plate, and serve with your choice of chutney or with ketchup.

Hi Nehal! This sounds a good idea to let kids play outside while (at least) eating healthy. :) Just wondering, is it not that spicy because of turmeric? Or maybe, just a little amount, right?

Hi Sweety,
No, the turmeric doesn't make it spicy, it just gives it golden yellow color, which makes the paneer look more tempting:). You still want to use it in little amount though.
