Quick & Easy Paneer- Capsicum Curry 

​The fastest & simplest way to make a Paneer-Capsicum-Onion dish, that tastes fabulous with steamed rice/laccha parathas/hot phulka. 

I used my favourite ‘Feel Good’ brand of #paneer that I bought from Dorabjee’s 

Here’s what you need to do – 

■ In a pan take a spoonful of Ghee, and add Kalonji (nigella seeds/onion seeds) to it. 

■ Once the seeds start to sizzle a bit, add diced onion, and capsicum, pinch of turmeric, salt, ‘Kitchen King’ masala & red chilli powder to taste, and toss on high flame for just a minute (the vegetables should remain crunchy) 

■ Add a little whisked yogurt, and stir in till combined well. Lower the heat at this point. 

■ Add cubes of Paneer, and stir gently till combined. Do not overcook Paneer, as it becomes chewy. Add water/milk/cream, as per your choice, to adjust the consistency. 
Serve the dish with fresh steamed rice/paratha/phulka.

Didn’t know Over-Ripe Bananas would make such wonderful Parathas ☺👏(flatbreads) 

​Few days ago I made a  banana walnut loaf using over-ripe bananas, that I somehow wanted to finish off. Thats when a friend gave me a recipe for this sweet paratha. Now honestly, I had never thought of using bananas to make parathas, so I was quite curious about the taste. 

And guess what…. I never thought overripe bananas would make such wonderful easy recipes ! I loved it ! 

I modified the recipe slightly, as I didn’t want to use sugar, or make the paratha too sweet. 

So this is my version of the banana paratha – • 2 over-ripe bananas • big pinch of Cardamom powder

• big pinch of Salt

• 1 tsp Jaggery (I just wanted a hint of sweetness, but you can add more if you want your paratha Sweeter) • 1 tsp Ghee • Wheat Flour (as much as the banana paste can hold, and make a soft yet firm ‘chapati’ like dough) ● Blend cardamom powder , jaggery and bananas to a fine paste.

● Knead a soft yet firm dough by adding little wheat flour at a time, to the banana mixture. Add Salt and Ghee while kneading. ● Roll out Parathas, and cook on a griddle till golden and crisp on the edges. Use few drops of ghee on the sides while cooking. Serve hot
