Our love for spicy and tangy is well showcased in our obsession with chaats, pakodas and how we always ask for some extra lemon and chillies for almost all of our food items. But if you think we restrain these flavours to only street food, you are mistaken. In the length and breadth of the country, there are a number of curry and rice dishes that are as tantalising as those street famous chaats. We came across one such lip-smacking curry, which is - Chatpata paneer.
Living up to its name, Chatpata Paneer is spicy, tangy and has just the right amount of zing needed to kick-start any meal. If you are a fan of paneer and tangy things, this recipe is going to make you salivate and run to the kitchen and make some for yourself. Quite easy to make, this recipe needs just some basic masalas, lemon and curd for the tanginess and you're good to dig in. Let's read about the recipe here:
