Chili Paneer with Fried Rice RECIPES

Chili paneer is served as a starter or tastes great with noodles. It is very easy to make. But just be careful while frying paneer and make sure that the gas is on a medium flame. Paneer should be shallow fried not burnt. Chili paneer taste great even without using any onions. Some people say that ajinomoto is harmful so here we used a very less amount of ajinimoto while preparing chili paneer. Such a little amount will not harm.
