Paneer posto is a delicious creamy dish. Posto in Bengali means paste of poppy seeds which is cooked with veggies , fish and even chicken or just taken raw with mustard oil and hot steamed rice. Today I used that concept of Bengali posto but to it add some ingredients to give it a royal touch. The dish looks very rich but it is not that heavy and not loaded with too much of calories but a simple fast to cook easy delicious dish. The best part of it is poppy seed paste is good to give you a happy sleep so if you have it for dinner a good sleep is ensured. So be happy cook and have fun . I am sure you all will love it. This is special too as I am taking this dish for all my friends in Potluck Party Cyber Style.You too can come and join us there.
