Paneer Capsicum Kurma

Capsicum is one of my favourite combination with paneer. Capsicums have very low calories and numerous nutrients which help boost your immunity system. Paneer is also a favourite for all age groups and it is a high protein food. It is quite easy to make at home. I always prepare homemade paneer. This is a coconut based gravy with paneer and capsicum. This is a simple home style kurma and there is no cashew paste or fresh cream. This kurma goes well with chapathi, ghee rice and dosas. The consistency is a little thicker than the other kurma. Let's see how to prepare this kurma with step by step photos.
