Marinating paneer always makes it more appealing because it imbibes a wide spectrum of flavours. This semi-dry subzi prepared with marinated paneer and capsicum is rich with the aroma of cumin and carom seeds, further energized by the addition of tangy fresh tomato pulp. Enjoy the Marinated Paneer and Capsicum Subzi fresh and hot, with whole wheat parathas, not only for the heavenly culinary experience it offers but also for a boost of nutrients, especially vitamins A and C and fibre that come from capsicum and tomatoes, and the calcium and protein from low-fat paneer.
