I looked for this recipe after enjoying the dish in a restaurant and I think this one is actually better! It was very easy and turned out just as I hoped. It was very tasty accompanied by broccoli and baby corn stir fry and fried rice. As I had some leftover batter, I dipped a few mushrooms in the remainder and added them to the dish; they were tasty too.

Finally a recipe that results into authentic paneer chilly (dry)that I have always been craving for, at home! I made it last evening as a crackling starter. It is absolutely sumptuous and tasty and does not need an accompaniment! Follow the recipe to the tee and its restaurant quality all the way!
