Chop paneer pieces to square or cube or triange or diamond shape. In a bowl add besan flour, 1 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp red chilli, 1/2 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp amchoor, 1 tsp coriander powder, green chilies and mix well and make a thick paste.

Heat oil in a pan and when hot enough reduce the flame to medium, dip one piece of paneer in the besan flour mixture. Ensure that the entire paneer piece is dipped in besan flour mixture. Fry the paneer pieces till they turn golden brown. Turn sides constantly so both the sides cook well.
