Corn with Paneer

Being a mom, I want to feed nutritious food to my child. After doing course of child nutrition I learned, every meal of child is very-very important, and we need to make it nutritious as well as tasty. As far I know my kid, she do not eat the food which she do not like it. 

All my friends and family knows my kid loves Paneer. I always make Paneer with some veggies, like Mutter-Paneer, Paneer- Shimla Mirch, Aloo Mutter Paneer and Palak Paneer. This time I wanted to try something new. And I came out with this recipe. Simple and Quick yet nutritious recipe.

We all like to eat good food, but we do not even give a thought about its nutrition. So, I would like you guys to know the nutrition points of this curry. After reading this facts, I am sure you will definitely want to give it a try. Enjoy....
  1. Corn is nutritious, providing fiber, which aids in digestion, plus folate, thiamin, phosphorus, vitamin C, and magnesium (about 10% of the daily value for each). The folic acid in corn is now known to be an important factor in preventing neural-tube birth defects. It's just as important in preventing heart disease, according to studies that show folic acid can prevent a buildup of homocysteine, an amino acid, in the body.

  1. Paneer is very light, easy to digest, and absolutely loved by kids. Its high on calcium, and thus
    helps in building strong teeth and bones. Paneer also has a health benefit of reducing the development of insulin resistance syndrome. This syndrome is associated with obesity,
    hypertension, glucose intolerance and Type 2 diabetes mellitus.
