Mushroom-Paneer Chilli

Indo-Chinese foods are most famous here in north India and I also love them to have some time for a change. This is a very simple and easy to made recipe, I made it lots of time. In this recipe I use gram flour (बेसन) instead of all-purpose flour (मैदा) and it’s made very yummy. Hope you also love this.
