Paneer Capsicum Rice

Pin

 

For the third post for the Blogging Marathon #93 theme for the week, “One Ingredient, 3 ways”, here is a rice that I have fallen in love with recently! Not only because of its taste, but because of its simplicity to cook it! Like I mentioned earlier, even since I have been on quantified eating, I have been prepping my meals a lot. One of it is the rice. Cooking little quantity of rice everyday can be daunting, so I cook the rice for the whole week, weight them individually for days and pack them in dabbas. By doing this, it used to make my life easy.

 

Since I had to have paneer for my protein, and some form of vegetable, this combination of capsicums with paneer became my favorite. I guess majority of my nights, my meal was this. I never clicked it because I never thought it was blog worthy. But when the theme came up and I chose paneer to the ingredient, I had to choose this dish. This is perfect for the lunch boxes for your kids, since it comes together in no time. There is no chopping of onion and tomato, though you may add it if you like. I like to keep things simple! 😉 Some basic spices with the main ingredients, and you are done! Try this one day and I am sure you will get hooked. You can thank me later… 🙂
