Paneer Chilli Dry

It's a lazy day as usual and didn't have any plans of preparing something tedious.... so opened refrigerator and looked in with a hope of finding something good!!!
Paneer was trying to put its hand up in a vain attempt that I will notice finally I gave it a try :)

Me and my family are thorough non-vegetarians!! If you follow my posts regularly you must have noticed that till now most of my posts are about  non-vegetarian dishes.

Since one of my readers told me to prepare something vegetarian, so here's one post for all my vegetarian readers and also for those who love yummy food :)
