Paneer and sweet corn are an evergreen favourite, whether the duo goes into a pizza, pasta, pulao or in this case a subzi. This dish is surprisingly very easy to prepare, when you compare it with the exhilarating flavour it gives! The Paneer Makai is made of everyday ingredients, and also pools in capsicum for an exciting crunch and punchy flavour. Have this subzi fresh and hot with your favourite paratha.

I made it with a few modifications. Added black pepper powder and some curd and cream to the gravy. It was delicious.
