Chilly panner is DH’s one of the most liked dishes. Especially the chilly paneer made in Hotel Bhīma’s on Church Street, but since it’s not always good to have outside food, I tried to replicate the Bhīma’s version of Chilly Panner and it tasted good and obviously a bit healthy than the restaurant one. I totally avoid the ajinomoto in all my Chinese dishes, so the taste may vary a bit, but it is yummy for sure.
