Now add the chopped bell peppers, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder and mix well.
Let it cook till the bell peppers become tender and let all the moisture evaporate.
Finally add the crumbled paneer and mix well. Make sure the paneer is incorporated well
Let it cook for couple of minutes and that’s it. Turn off the heat.

If you don’t have fresh paneer, you can use the store bought. Grate the coarsely or pulse them for couple of minutes to get the coarse panner. You can grind fresh masala by just dry roasting 1 tbsp of coriander seeds and 3 red chillies and grind them without adding any water. Cumin powder is optional. Adjust the spices and salt according to your taste. You let it roast and let the panner brown too for smoky taste.
