Chilly Paneer Recipe (Indo-Chinese Fusion Side Dish Recipe)
Indo-Chinese cuisine has developed through out the years of social and economic changes, and encompasses the regional and traditional foods of India. I thoroughly enjoy mixing all my southindian dishes with indochinese dishes like gobi manchurian with sambar sadam and so on.
Chilly paneer is again relished with roti or pulao that is how I like it. Since many indochinese dishes consist a combination of delicious sauce the taste and flavor is unique.
