Paneer Baby-Corn Bell-pepper Stir Fry

Happy Father's Day! Today's recipe is for my Father. He always loves the food cooked by me and Paneer Baby-corn Bell pepper stir fry is one of his favorites. He also loves carrot halwa so i posted in earlier post as modified version of carrot halwa with beetroot as Beetroot Carrot Halwa.

Paneer Baby-corn Bell-pepper stir Fry is very simple, easy and quick dish that also looks beautiful because of the colourful vegetables used.  It goes well with both rice and chapati.  It can be prepared in a few minutes. Kasuri Methi (dried fenugreek leaves) here i used, is the main ingredient which has bitter taste and a characteristic smell.  Here it is used with cottage cheese / paneer, bell pepper and baby corn. In this recipe, the soft textures of the corn and paneer is beautifully balanced by the crunchiness of the bell pepper and onion.

  • 1 cup Paneer cubed 
  • 12-15 Baby corn  
  • 1 onion

  • 1-2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoon Jeera Powder (Roasted cumin seed Powder)

  3. Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan on high flame, add butter and diced onions, then stir fry it for 2 minutes. 
  4. Now add capsicums, tomatoes, baby corn, turmeric powder, red chili powder, jeera powder, kasuri methi and salt. Mix well and Sauté it on medium heat till all the vegetables become slightly soft (about 2-3 minutes).
