Potato Red Capsicum Paneer Sabji

This dish is a colourful combo of the most popular veggie potato, red capsicum or red pepper for colour and flavour!!
Ever popular Paneer or Cheese to enhance the taste and flavour of the dish!

 It is said that there are nearly 4000 varieties of potatoes in various colours, shapes and sizes. Unfortunately we do not eat potatoes raw although they contain a high amount of vitamin C most of it which is lost due to cooking the potato. High in potassium, Vitamin B6 and is good for the heart –Capsicum otherwise known as Peppers grow in variety of colours – green, gold or yellow and red.   Capsicums are low in unsaturated fat, cholesterol and sodium.  Good source of Vitamins A, B6, C and K it is mostly available throughout the year!!
My preference is to use the Red Capsicum for the wonderful colour and flavour!!
