How to make Paneer mix vegetable
This delicious dish consists of a mix of paneer, potatoes, carrots, capsicums, and onions simmered in mildly spiced and creamy gravy. It is very healthy as it includes a mix of many vegetables. Hence, a very good option for kids and grown-ups alike. This dish is most commonly known as Paneer Mix Veg, Mixed Vegetable with Paneer, Paneer Mix Veg Sabji, Paneer Mix Veg Curry, or even Paneer Vegetable ki sabzi.
If you do not wish to add Paneer (Cottage Cheese), simply exclude it and you have a recipe for Mix Vegetable Curry.
You can adjust the spices as per your liking and even add more vegetables like french beans and green peas. You can simply follow the recipe of the gravy and mix the vegetables of your choice.
This paneer mix vegetable gets a unique aroma and texture from roasted and hand-crushed Kasoori methi (Dry Fenugreek Leaves). I simply love the aroma of this and it gives a new dimension to the dish when added to the vegetable gravy.
Try making this for your weekend lunch or dinner, also try to include this recipe. If you have a party and have planned to make an Indian menu, Paneer Mix vegetable sabzi is always a hit.
