Tried and tasted by Nivedita
What ever happens is always for the good, the most famous lines from Geeta. And I believe in it very much.
It happens with me always. Thats the reason many times I don't get panic if something goes wrong. The same thing happened with me last week. One of my best friend came to meet me. It was first time she was coming to our Hubli house. Our friendship is almost 18 yrs old. We were meeting after 4 years. It was natural for me to get excited and was planning for some special menu. When I asked her in the phone What she wants to have, she preferred our North Karnataka food but her daughter wanted Chinese when I gave her the option. Thats why I planned for Chinese menu for my friend and her daughter. Now to plan a menu was not difficult. I thought of making Chinese fried rice, Schezwan noodles and Chilli Paneer.
Thought of bringing fresh paneer(was lazy to make paneer).
And morning I went to the near by store (MORE) and the store was closed for stock checking :-(((
I had the ready masala packet for chilli paneer, so thought of making veg balls instead of Paneer.
This is what I served to my friend and her daughter :
So here goes the recipe For Veg Chilly:
