Chilli Paneer Spaghetti
Chilli paneer on its own is so delicious, so why not pair it up with Spaghetti to make a yummy Chilli Paneer Spaghetti. Paneer is a type of firm cheese (cottage cheese) that takes on the flavour of the gravy/sauce very well and that’s why it works really well for this dish. If you like, substitute with chicken or a meat of your choice.
