Paneer & Pepper Karahi / Cottage Cheese & Bell Pepper Curry

I love cooking with paneer often because it taste so awesome and my siblings love this a lot. The cool thing about paneer is, since it is so bland it picks up all the flavours which we add into it..

This recipe is so simple but definitely rich in taste...I served it with paper roast and it was a total hit.You could actually make some chapati or naan to go with it.

I hope you love it and as usual off you go to the step by step recipe with pictures.
