To make your festival extra special why not try Thai Basil Paneer and Chatpate Khasta Aaloo? Don’t worry. Dine With Colors is here to your rescue. You can watch the Navratri special episodes wherein the host of the show Simran Kochar in conversation with Chef Sunny from Chand Palace in Parsippany.

Chef Sunny also shared his experience of how he came up with the idea of this interesting fusion dish ‘Thai Basil Paneer’. He shared, “Some people are tired of eating potatoes every day. So, to make them taste something special during the festivities, Thai Basil Paneer is our go-to dish. The recipe is simple, and anyone can easily prepare it during Navratri also because the recipe doesn’t include onion or Garlic.
