After all, who doesn’t like a delicious bowl of chilli paneer for snacks or for dinner tucked inside the crispy paratha? Ohh yes! The chili paneer makes an excellent stuffing for the quick weeknight chapati/paratha wraps. And that is probably one of my favorite ways to use the leftover chili paneer.

These Veg Spring Roll stuffed with the Indo-Chinese flavors are so good I recommend making a double batch because they will go fast! They are popular across Indian sub-continent with different names – Chinese Spring Roll, Veg Spring Roll or only Spring Roll.

You just can’t stop at a single piece. And they are super easy to make – you just prepare the stuffing, then roll it up in the wrappers, and later deep-fry.

Kung Pao Chicken is the most popular Chinese takeaway fare. Why? Because it is so delicious. Along with a quick and simple fried rice, Kung Pao Chicken tastes simply divine. I am so fond of this dish that finally I learned the trick of making a good Kung Pao Chicken at home.
Mulligatawny Soup is an English soup recipe with origins in Indian cuisine. To be more precise the roots of its origin are in the Anglo-Indian Cuisine developed during the British Raj in India. The name originates from the Tamil words millagai/milagu and thanni and can be translated as “pepper water”. Many relate Mulligatawny Soup with the pepper rasam recipe as well. Both have quite a few similarities as well. But Mulligatawny Soup is thick in texture and is much more than just a soup. It can be happily placed in the category of one-pot meal bowls. It has lentil, rice, plenty of vegetables, coconut milk and herbs. All that required making hearty, fulfilling and comforting one bowl dish.
Thinking what to do with leftover naan? Make Naan Pizza. You will surely thank me for this easy naan pizza recipe. Last week, we had a dinner party and guess what, due to some last minute cancellations we were left with extra butter chicken and naan bread. And the next day, butter chicken naan pizza was our quick dinner. Naan pizza layered with rich tomato sauce and topped with butter chicken tastes simply divine. Don’t be stringent while adding cheese, after all, pizza tastes so much better with extra cheese. The combination of butter chicken and cheese is a guaranteed riot of flavors. This particular naan pizza is phenomenal because it has two of my favorite things – first butter chicken, I adore butter chicken. Secondly, super thin and crisp crust. Why is it so amazing? Well, actually, I think I know why (crispy outside, soft inside).
