Hi, Hope you all doing great.!!  Got little late in sharing my new post. Today I will be sharing a  recipe of dish which I cooked on Saturday. As it was a weekend I didn’t wanted to cook much for lunch and even my grocery shopping was pending, so didn’t had much vegetables and other stuff in my pantry so with the  limited stuff I had in pantry,  I prepared this dish which was easy and quick to make. I had this dish in restaurants many times and like ordering this dish as it has lot of flavors to satisfy one’s palate. My husband who doesn’t like paneer much (I can’t resist paneer)… 😉 he too found it tasty and enjoyed his weekend lunch. This recipes has simple ingredients like Paneer, Bell Peppers, onion and tomatoes.

So,  here are the ingredients and method to cook this recipe..
