I am here with another healthy addition to your diet. Its name tells everything about it. My kids are great fan of paneer so generally my dishes are full of paneer but to have paneer every second day with same taste sounds little weird. To spare us from this boredom of taste I usually give my twist and turns to these dishes to make them more interesting and presentable. So that kids tummy bhi khush aur mummy bhi khush.
This is so simple yet delicious side dish full of protein and iron. To give it further more healthy touch I avoided using cream and more oil. Even then it is so yummy to be a part of any party menu also.
Step wise recipe of dish is given below ,hope you all will like it.
