Chilli Paneer

15 March, 2013

Chilli Paneer 

Chilli paneer is one of the most popular Indian dish that we find in Indo-chinese  restaurants. It is also one of the easy-and-quick dishes to whip up when you are short of time and also a great dish to serve at parties as a starter or as a side dish. It is absolutely delicious.
          I got my first Liebster award from Rani at Rani's Gourmet . I was so happy and excited. However, I was even more surprised when I got my second Liebster Award within the same day from Priya at Yummy Foods . I also got one from Real Home Cook Food which I did not update and recently another one from Poornima at Poornima's CookBook. I will write about my Liebster awards in my next post. Hope you enjoy with the chilli paneer! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe!! Njoy!! )   :)
