Paneer, corn and bell pepper stir fry

If you are looking for a paneer dish that is simple and easy to put together and yet hearty, then your search ends here. I'm not sure why I didn't think of posting this recipe earlier coz I make this whenever I have paneer at home.  

I have always believed that the combo of cottage cheese and Corn is a match made in heaven. In this dish, the soft textures of the corn and cheese is beautifully balanced by the crunch of the bell pepper. The use of ginger, garlic and the curry powder further enhances the taste and lends the curry a punch that makes this dish absolutely irresistible. No wonder. This dish is a perfect example of a curry in a hurry.
