Paneer Capsicum Sabzi

There are days when I just don't feel like cooking but still drag myself to kitchen. At times like these, this recipe comes to my rescue. It takes hardly 15-20 minutes. But, heyyy... don't prejudge it.... the combination of paneer and capsicum tastes amazing in tomato gravy. The recipe I am sharing here is inspired by a lot of variations of paneer capsicum I found online.
