Chilli Paneer - South Indian Style.

This is perfectly a south indian version of chilli paneer. This recipe is super simple, all ingredients available in your pantry.
No need to search in any super stores.
I usually buy aavin paneer that is super soft and cheaper than the other brands.  
This is my husband Venk’s recipe. He often makes it at home. I am diehard fan of this. I seriously dint think this is such simple one until I clicked the stepwise pictures while he was preparing this. Thanks Mr. Venk for the contribution to my blog.
