Mix Vegetable Paneer Sabji

This is the first time, I am posting North-Indian recipe. Though north cuisine is considered as rich and heavy, this Mix Vegetable Paneer Sabji is prepared using a minimum amount of oil. Moreover, hung curd is used instead of cream for garnishing. It also contains protein-rich vegetables such as green peas, yellow, red, green bell pepper, and cottage cheese. It is sweet-spicy and can be enjoyed with Paratha or Jeera rice.
