Tawa Chilli Paneer is one of those quick snacks you can make when you have homemade paneer ready on hands. We never buy Paneer except when we want to make Paneer Tikkas on skewers. Else its always only homemade and the kids love how soft it tastes.
I was supposed to take up Cooking on Tawa and was so looking forward to make new and interesting dishes on tawa. When I picked up this theme, I was literally thinking about the tawa used by the street vendors to make Tawa Puloa or Curry. Of course their tawas are really huge.
I was introduced to the Tawa Pulao during our Ahmedabad and loved it to the core. In my visit to the city again for Vaishali’s family function, I saw a delicious paneer cooked along with tri colour capsicum that were all so evenly diced into 1/2 inch cubes. The gravy had turned out so well. The chef had the orange masala prepared ahead. He simply assembled the curry for us with the main ingredients. He was only cooked single portion at a time and boy, was it a sight!
So while picking up this theme, I basically wanted to make those dishes at home. However as it seems to happen these days, I simply no longer have a control over the things that seem to happen to my plans. Nothing materialised. The Spice your Life! site, that was supposed to take just a week has gone into dormancy for a month and some by now. I am still not ready with a post for it.
Anyway, the point I am digressing here is, Cooking in Tawa is still going to be a dream as this Tawa Chili paneer is now part of the Kids Delight themed on Birthday Party Snacks hosted by me this month. When it comes to parties, nothing thrills the kids more than a Paneer.
This dish came about when Konda was super hungry and off late as she has been demanding, she only wants something very delicious, very cheesy and very interesting. You note the very’s that come along? Well, this Tawa Paneer Chili actually took about 15 mins on the whole as I had it serving before her TV show got over.
