Paneer and okra curry

I really like paneer. My favorite one, simply fried with turmeric, garlic, and salt. But this curry it is my second favorite way to eat paneer.

Creamy, comforting, fragrant super easy just perfect.


We usually eat curry with some pita bread but this time I decided to add cumin rice and all dish turned just amazing.


So here is the recipe and now I am going to enjoy ME time on a Saturday night.

Have a gerat weekend everyone.
