Paneer And Capsicum Masala

Paneer And Capsicum Masala - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
I never like to have paneer, so it’s been apart from my kitchen. Recently I saw many of the recipes related to paneer and also I have tried desserts with paneer. So it motivated me to cook with paneer. I have been hunting for some different recipe, but mostly I came across kadai paneer and panner recipes which were dry. So I thought of experimenting my own recipe and used all the ingredients which came to my mind at that time. Been wondering how the dish would turn out, everyone liked it the most. This was our today’s dinner and can’t wait to share.
