Like most of us like having, certain staple ingredients in the pantry/ freezer.....I always have a pack of frozen paneer and some frozen naan/roti. Paneer subzi with naan is a big favorite for my little ones! Once in two weeks...we make a 'semi homemade' meal of their favorite 'Shahi Paneer' or 'Orange bhaji' as they like to call it due to the orange hue the curry has :) along with some store bought Naan.
1 Cup cubed Paneer
1 cup corn kernels
1/2 Green pepper chopped into bite size pieces
Some dried cranberries, raisins and cilantro for garnish
1 large onion chopped into large pieces
3 tomatoes chopped

1/4 cup Heavy cream
2 tsp Ghee/butter
1tsp Shahi paneer masala/Kitchen king masala
1/2tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp Garlic paste
