STIR-FRY PEPPERS AND PANEER

An Indo - Chinese dish that is inspired with Asian sauces using Indian ingredients, stir-fry peppers and paneer are one of my favorites.

Nothing can cure your evening hunger better than this quick and easy batch of stir-fry peppers and paneer.


Whenever I don't feel like cooking or spending an hour in a kitchen I always make a small snack for myself. Last weekend, I made a batch of stir fry peppers and paneer. It's a 15 minutes recipe. I was so surprised when I tried this easy, quick vegetarian snack. It turned out really delicious. It's my perfect go-to recipe. It can be served as a starter or a nice main course dish if you have a big enough bowl. It's colorful and loaded with fresh tastes. It's an incredibly appetizing and a delicious side dish that goes well with steamed rice, vegetable platter or any of your favorite dish.

This snack is quick and easy to make and sure to wake up your sleepy taste buds. You can also make this recipe on a lazy weekend or for thanksgiving. It's a great party appetizer to serve your guests. The paneer in the recipe provides with a lot of protein and calcium and the crunchy bright colored bell pepper provides with a lot of vitamins, folate and antioxidants.

It's an Indo - Chinese dish, inspired with Asian sauces using Indian ingredients. It's quite an easy dish to make. You just need 3 veggies and few ingredients to make this delicious starter. If you don't have the Indian spices available near you, add salt and pepper and it'll taste exactly the same. I added the green bell pepper in this dish. Feel free to use your favorite bell pepper. You can add any of your favorite veggies in the snack, so just be creative and surprise yourself!!

Do try these lightly fried onions, pepper and paneer cubes mixed with Indian spices. Drizzle some red tomato sauce, vinegar and/or lime juice and you'll love it! I totally adore the combination of peppers and paneer. They add crunch, color and sweet flavor to the meal. I'm sure you'll love it too!!
