This is your normal chilli paneer. But i modified it so i can serve it in a toothpick. It is so easy to make and it will make your party really special..The one thing is you have to cut your paneer cubes a little big, so i soaked that paneer in some hot water so it gets soft. I used cherry tomatoes to make it look beautiful, if you cannot get it, you can use normal tomatoes which is cubed..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
