Chilli Paneer
Chilli Paneer is a indo chinese starter which is really very easy to prepare at home.Actually soups and starters are out of my menu, I start with the dishes right away. So the first time I tasted chilli paneer was very recently only, and the one served in the restaurant was more like gobi 65 and they called it chilli paneer. So I browsed to find the exact recipe and after few googling I came up with this recipe.
