PANEER PEPPER MASALA
We eat paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese) fairly often in my house. It is a common ingredient in our Indian vegetarian cooking. One of the reasons is that paneer has numerous health benefits.
Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes for different dishes made with paneer, such as:-
As you know, it is suggested we have black pepper during the winter months as it boosts immunity. It is therefore an important ingredient in Ayurvedic medicines and home remedies.
I had paneer at home so made this delicious Paneer Pepper Masala which I have adapted from Paneer Pepper Masala in Edible Garden, a food and recipe website run by Nags.
In making this dish, I reduced the spice levels to suit our taste. We loved it and I hope you will like it too.
