Chatpata dishes always fascinate us, are you agree with me? Of course yes, who don't like some spicy tangy pickle or chutney along with their regular meal. They definitely increase the taste of a normal meal to double. So to satisfy our this fascination I prepared spicy tangy cheese stuffed chillies as cottage cheese is also one of the favorite ingredient of mine , ummmmm I can feel the zing of its taste still in my mouth. Absolutely delicious and yummy side dish you can prepare and keep it for later use also.
