Pomegranate Paneer Kabobs

The new year has begun and so is our resolution, so I am planning to celebrate this Valentine's day the healthier way (psst...except the chocolate treat 😉). And as always we gonna stay at home and enjoy the day together. Keeping the recipes simple but special, I will spend less time in the kitchen and keep more time for us. Well, I think beetroots, pomegranates, strawberries, raspberries and other reddish stuff are perfect to bring out lovely colours that can make valentine dishes attractive. In this recipe, I used pomegranate as the base of the marinade. It came out so well. This recipe is perfect for lunch, I think. Just have them with any bread of your choice along with green Chutney! No chopping, no cutting , just fuss-free relaxing afternoon!!! So try this recipe and cook the natural way this Valentine!!
