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....
- 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.
- 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.
