Recently I was very bored to make the same veggies and wanted some change. I knew there was corn stocked. All I had to do was buy some paneer. It was the best time to prepare this veggie. A nice, spicy and hot dish like this is perfect for a change.
The mix of paneer, sweet corn and capsicum plus the spices, makes this dish absolutely delectable..Enjoy!!!
