Chilli Paneer Recipe / Chilli Paneer Dry Recipe / Easy Chilli Paneer Recipe

Chilli Paneer

Chilli Paneer Recipe is a vegetarian Indo-Chinese starter. Chilli Paneer is a mild spicy recipe, in which the soft paneer cubes are deep fried and sautéed in the blend of sauces along with some vegetables.  I rarely make these kinda starter at home and kids have been asking for Chilli Paneer long time, Then checked my blog that I haven't posted the recipe yet, so to full fill both my kids & my blog prepared this Easy & Tasty Chilli Paneer few days back. 

And while editing the videos only noticed that I by mistake some of the clips/recipe procedure was not captured. You can't redo after the work has done right?! Also, it gonna take long time to make the chilli paneer again. So managed with titles, hope its not confusing to follow the recipe.
