Paneer and Peppers

This quick stir fried Indian dish is perfect for a weekday dinner. Paneer and peppers makes a simple, yet delicious combination that cooks up less than 15 minutes! I like this dish with a good amount of heat which is complimented by the mild flavour of paneer, and cooking the peppers until they’ve just begun to soften adds a nice sweetness.

Simply Spicy Cabbage Sabzi

I simply love good bitter flavours brought to life with salt and spice! This Spicy Cabbage Sabzi is a perfect answer to my craving. The addition of the fresh green cilantro really freshens up the dish. Similarly, the quick squeeze of lemon gives it a nice kick of acid adding brightness and balancing out the earthy bitterness of the cabbage and spices.
