chilli paneer

Last friday i had some friends over dinner and my menu was completely chinese cuisine,i had made chilli paneer ,spring rolls,gobi manchurian (gravy),chinese fried rice,chinese haka noodles and to end with fruit custard with icecream,i and my husband ( my daughter just likes noodles ) just freak on chinese food and it was long i made all these stuff so planned a chinese meal ,also was just tired of making north indian food everytime for everyone who comes,specially my husband use to crib about the same cuisine everytime so this time for a change i switched over ;) .So to start with my first post of chinese menu ,here is chilli paneer recipe which i simply cherish and could not resist over eating,this recipe is my dear friend mamta's (verma)one of the famous dishes,its been so many times i had this at her place and also i made many a times before using her ingredients just some measurements are here and there ,otherwise its more or less the same ,i still miss her taste and infact all the food,i luv anything that she cooks ,when she was in US ..maybe 6-7 yrs back she use to write for and her kaju korma recipe was quite famous but when she moved back to india she stopped writing and got busy in her daughter's schooling ..hats off  to our indian school education who gives so much of burden to young children and above all the competition that makes small kids/children to attempt suicide,its really shameful,but there is no other option and choices i guess ! Newaz,mamta im coming to india soon for this diwali and will definately land on bangalore especially to eat all  food made by you and ofcourse to meet u ;)..oops ..i hope she is not reading this otherwise she will kill me :-)Actually had written this post a couple of days back but was not sure to post as i just have this one picture ,infact have only one each pics of the whole dinner menu as was really in hurry and was busy cooking till last moment as i feel chinese is best when served immediately from the wok..hence could not click and arrange the plates nicely.Just not happy with my clicks this time :(
