Paneer capsicum is a popular dish in north india and is very easy to make. I learned this recipe from my mother. She used to make this dish whenever we had party in our house. I totally adore this dish. So I thought even i should make this for a party at my home and it was a huge success.

Paneer is a good source of protein for vegetarian people and is one of the most loved veg by Indians.
