Soya Chaap Paneer Masala for Diwali Celebration

Soya Chaap Paneer Masala/ 
Soya Chaap Side Dish With Cottage Cheese
Diwali Celebration

Hi Friends,
Hope you all enjoyed Diwali. I enjoyed a lot with my family. Made  Rangoli, lit diyas, did pooja, ate lots of sweets, enjoyed crackers although i was scared of the pollution because of crackers, as polluted fog already grabbed Delhi which is a very dangerous sign and can cause highly dangerous Acid Rain. Delhi Govt is trying to spread awareness regarding this and requesting people to stop polluting their environment. So i request all of you wherever you live, just try to make your environment pollution free.

Rangoli I made on Diwali

Now without delay to today's recipe. One more addition to my Most popular Soya Chaap recipes. Now you are more aware about SOYA CHAAP. If not then Read this. You can buy soya chaap from here. Earlier you enjoyed Soya Chaap Dry, Soya Chaap Chaat, Soya Chaap Gravy and Soya Chaap Sandwich. Now this is one another delicious and crowd pleaser recipe. This one is a semi gravy dish. It has soya and paneer means more nutrition also. I made them Carrot Rice and combo was super hit at my home. Everybody loved it. Color combination of both (carrot rice and  chaap) was so appealing. I recommend you to give it a try.
