Zucchini Paneer ( Courgettes and Indian cottage cheese Curry)


Indian cottage cheese better known as Paneer is a hot favourite among the vegetarian community. In this experimental dish, I tried to infuse Zucchini, the low calorie and highly nutritious vegetable, with paneer in a new form of curry. The outcome being really yummy and delicious, I couldn’t resist from sharing the recipe.
