ABOUT Paneer Capsicum Kurma RECIPE

Capsicum is one of my favourite combination with paneer. Capsicums have very low calories and numerous nutrients which help boost your immunity system. Paneer is also a favourite for all age groups and it is a high protein food. It is quite easy to make at home. I always prepare homemade paneer.
