Paneer Capsicum Masala

Paneer Capsicum Masala

Sharing is caring!

Paneer Capsicum Masala is a rich creamy sauce made with roasted capsicum along with other ingredients topped with paneer.

This gravy makes a fantastic variation to your regular Paneer Masala as it has the spicy capsicum blended as a sauce. Finally, when we first made it, I felt kids will not like it. Furthermore, surprisingly nobody was able to identify that it has roasted capsicum in it.

It is a great way to include capsicum and other stuff which are normally removed when the kids eat it. Roasting the vegetables makes them more pronounced and tasty and it surely adds to this gravy.

This gravy is certainly a dish I can include to make more often! Another thing is, using vegetables in the sauce makes it more creamy. We are on the last day of creamy gravies for the BM#107 week 1.

  1. OMG! Valli, I recently made exactly the same paneer curry and now I am kicking myself as I didn’t click a picture and didn’t think much about naming it differently either 🙂 I know for a fact that this variation with roasted capsicum in the gravy is definitely a wonderful one.
