A jhatpat sabzi with nutritious ingredients, capsicum and paneer. Appealing to the eye and the palate, this super quick, utterly simple stir fry is lightly spiced and makes a good side with phulkas or a filling for a wrap/roll. You can even add a few tablespoons of thick coconut milk towards the end of the cooking process to give it a rich flavor. Whatever you do, use kasuri methi aka dried fenugreek leaves which gives oodles of flavor to the paneer.
