How to make chili paneer  - Chili paneer recipe
Chili paneer is  indo chinese recipe and mostly served as a starter. It can be serves as a special snacks too. It is made using capsicum /bell pepper and cottage cheese mainly. The soya  sauce used for making it gives chili paneer that tangy and taste along with spicy capsicums , and crunchy cabbage makes this unique and delicious.
I often make chili paneer as many vegetables are used in it and my children eat this without making any fuss. In following recipe I have used ground vegetables paste for making chili paneer, which is an extra step and not necessary while making normal chili paneer.
