nice combination of paneer, oats and mus...

nice combination of paneer, oats and mushrooms with protein,fiber & spices which improve the BMR and add to health and taste. the sauce if it is ready to use it will be easier for preparing with less time for remaining things and can be ready to eat breakfast for working people. If the qunatity of paneer is reduced it can be had easily by persons who are on diet and want to have varieties in their breakfast. Replace corn flour in sauce with ragi \brown rice\ jowar flour, it is good to dieters
