One dish that I am incredibly, innnncredibly proud of is my Paneer Chilli. For those uninitiated, it is an Indian adaptation of Chinese flavors in Cottage Cheese cubes.

If you thought crispy cottage cheese cubes tasted amazing in an ethnic Chinese inspired sauce, wait until you have THIS amazingly simple combination of potatoes with a Chinese sauce!

So simple. So cheap. So delicious.

Of course, the authenticity of this dish is questionable. I don’t even know if Chinese people eat their potatoes this way! 🙂 All I know is that Indians – with their undying love for Indian version of Chinese food, absolutely enjoy these Chilly Potatoes! (more…)

Because of Garlic Fried Rice.

Have you ever felt sheer joy from eating good food? Well, this Garlic Fried Rice can induce that wonderful comatose feeling –  because you just can’t stop at one mouthful. Two things will happen as you finish the over-sized plate of this rice in front of you – 1) A foolish grin gets plastered on that gorgeous face of yours. 2) You realize that no matter how “nice” you are, there is a “greedy devil” in you waiting to finish the entire batch of this rice hoping no one comes to claim their share.  (more…)

Extrapolating flavors from the Chinese cuisine, Indians make their Chinese Vegetable Hakka Noodles this way – hassle free and delicious, if not very authentic! If you’ve made my Schezwan Fried Noodles or Fried Rice before, then you’re in for another treat!


Paneer Chilli

Make these melt-in-your-mouth Chinese flavored Paneer Chilli to be served as an appetizer, snack or as a side to a main course!

Paneer Chilli Recipe | Chinese Chilly Paneer (Dry & Gravy options) Indians love their Chinese food.

I bold-ed “their” because the Chinese food you get in India is very different from the authentic Chinese food you get in China… or so I’ve been told.

But that really is not my problem. I’m not really hung up on the fact that Indians make their Chinese food totally wrong. One of these days, I’d truly love to have some real vegetarian Chinese Food. But when you extrapolate ethnic Chinese flavors to soft cubes of Cottage Cheese, you are pretty much making a firecracker dish! And I’m quite happy munching on these not-so-authentic yet so-damn-delicious Paneer Chilli!  (more…)
