Few weeks back I realized I make only few repeated paneer dishes at home which we all got bored of…Then when I saw this easy Chilli paneer recipe in a cookbook I borrowed from library,I just cant wait to try it,it was very simple yet one of the favourite style of recipe which my kid loves…He loves Indo Chinese fusions like Gobi manchrian etc..etc..He enjoyed it a lot as I expected..
