Rajma and paneer salad is salsa is sooo delicious... If you dont add salsa, and just add little salt and pepper to the rajma and paneer mixture, it tastes awesome.. However, it tastes best with salsa.. Salsa has a strong flavour of mixed herbs and chilli flakes..

A perfect protein and antioxidants rich salad...addition of coloured capsicum makes it so so so colourful...All three capsicums contain different forms of antioxidants and its important to include them in our diet....

Rajma, corn and low fat paneer tossed with salsa to make a tasty salad. This is good for diabetics also. My 9 year daughter loved this and kept asking for more.
